The Department of the Built Environment recently welcomed a guest speaker from KORE, a passive foundation system from Cavan in Ireland.
Andrew Butler, Technical Sales Manager, KORE was invited to speak to 1st year BSc Honours in Quantity Surveying & BSc Honours in Construction Management & Engineering students.
The speaker was organised by Stephen Power, lecturer in the Built Environment. He explains why:
“The students were given a very comprehensive and informative Presentation by KORE”
The System offers a range of benefits over the traditional concrete strip foundation, footing and floor method including; cost savings, programming benefits and superior U-Values and Thermal Bridging reduction. The students were shown a number of Case Studies as part of the Presentation.
The System is well positioned as we move towards the introduction of nZEB scheduled for Spring 2019. For more information visit KORE Passive Foundation System
