The idea behind the venture is to encourage a greener future for people, places and planet 🌱

“The Skills Academy will be used to deliver training on future skills required to meet the skills gap within the workforce as society shifts towards Net Zero. We’re really excited for learners to start to come through The Skills Academy doors and use this amazing space!” –  Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc

Polypipe Building Products has provided two practical assessment displays that complement the fully functional ASHP on-site. One features our Overlay Plus over-the-floor system and the other features our Low Profile screeded system.
