National and international exhibitors will be on hand at this key event on 1-2 November in Coventry, while seminars and CPDs will raise awareness on current issues in housing.


he tragedy at Grenfell Tower highlighted that closer attention to safety needs to be paid when refurbishing high-rise

buildings. In its aftermath, material choice, build methods and fire safety standards have dominated the discussion. However, for those working within facilities management and construction, separating the facts from the speculation is crucial to determine how to best prepare for the future. With this in mind, one of the major debates at this year’s RCI Show, taking place on 1-2 November in Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, will focus on fire safety. Industry experts will address questions and concerns regarding the current regulations and highlight any changes in policy that are required going forward.


Another major topic that will be explored in depth at the show is the continuing lack of skilled workers and new entrants to the roofing sector. With an ageing workforce, the industry is facing a real challenge to meet the Government’s

ever-growing housing targets and deliver a strong pipeline of projects in the coming years. A panel including IKO’s MD Andy Williamson,

RCI Technical Note author Keith Roberts, and the CITB will give their views, in a debate chaired by NFRC’s CEO James Talman.


A total of 18 RIBA-approved CPD sessions will be delivered by leading manufacturers, including show sponsor Jablite as well as Knauf Insulation, IKO Permanite, Whitesales, Ash & Lacy, FM Approval, SIG Roofing and Moy Materials. Visitors will also hear from prominent green roof advocate Dusty Gedge, who will discuss the findings of a report on the green roof sector. Livia Williams from National Construction Training Services will host a seminar on ‘Developing Modern Methods of Construction’. The roofing, cladding and insulation sectors are under more scrutiny than ever before, so the need to source the right information is now more crucial than ever. The RCI Show 2017 will offer housing providers the platform to stay informed.

Klober posts a warning for the RCI show

Klober dry fixing products offer effectively maintenance-free ridges, hips and verges. Universally compatible with any tile or slate manufacturer’s products and extensively tested and improved over many years, they will be on view at the RCI show. Marketing Manager Andrew Cross explained.

“In the face of so many dry fixing product introductions over the past five years, the absence of a British Standard has made choice increasingly difficult for contractors. Many aren’t supported by testing or technical data, so publication of BS 8612 can’t come too soon.”

Dallmer will be exhibiting at the RCI show in the RICOH Arena in Coventry on 1st and 2nd November on stand B7. Dallmer will be showing a range of its products including the RenovaDrain, ideal for retrofit. When re-roofing, a major problem encountered is often the removal of existing roof drains before installing new ones and connecting them inside the building to existing drain-pipes. Dallmer’s Renova 63T Roof Drain is a product, which overcomes this

problem completely and therefore reduces the overall cost of roof renovation dramatically. Dallmer staff will be on hand to offer a full sales and technical advice and could assist with any project on the stand.
