SNIPEF Members invited to SELECT Toolbox Talks

April 24, 2023

SELECT, Scotland's largest construction trade association, is preparing to hit the road again with its enormously successful Toolbox Talks. For the first time, SNIPEF members will be welcomed to the events, helping provide the plumbing perspective on renewables.

Martyn Raine, SNIPEF Technical and Skills Manager, said: “Plumbing and heating professionals will have to work even more closely with their electrical counterparts in the future to create the technology to take us forward to a zero-carbon environment.

“SELECT’s Toolbox Talks roadshow is therefore a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, share knowledge and work together collegiately and co-operatively for the mutual benefit of both vital sectors.”

Bob Cairney, Director of Technical Services at SELECT, said: “We look forward to welcoming representatives from SNIPEF to this year’s Toolbox Talks to help everyone gain a better understanding of how our two disciplines can work together on the technology of the future.

“The role of the electrical contractor in installing ASHPs is a topic that is becoming increasingly relevant and, with SNIPEF’s contribution, we’re keen to explain to our members how the working landscape could look in the coming years.

“It makes sense to bring both trades together in this way to listen to the requirements and challenges on both sides and build a greater understanding of what is required from the professionals in each sector.”
