  • That was a great event last week.Really well attended. I really enjoyed being part of it. Green materials are now part of the mainstream.

    Remember if your design team are telling you the 'green' version of what you want is more expensive than the norm, tell them to try harder. If they can't find a tram who can. Can you?

  • Great typo! I meant "find a team who can", but tram works as well for some people.... DBB
