About the Saint-Gobain Technical Academy

In our ever-evolving construction landscape, traditional methods now intertwine with modern construction approaches and cutting-edge technologies. This fusion is reshaping the expectations for trades associated with construction, bringing about continual enhancements in health and safety, building performance, and sustainability standards. Adapting to these changes necessitates construction stakeholders to stay abreast of the latest trends.

At the Saint-Gobain Technical Academy, our focal point is to empower building trade and design professionals with the requisite skills and essential knowledge to navigate the current building landscape. Drawing on the expertise of seasoned personnel from Saint-Gobain businesses in Ireland and their partners, our training initiatives span a spectrum of topics—from energy efficiency and sustainability to compliance, fire safety, and sound performance in buildings. Aligned with Saint-Gobain's commitment to 'Make the world a better home,' our courses cater to seasoned industry professionals and newcomers alike, addressing skill shortages, legislative compliance, and training on modern, lightweight, and sustainable technologies.
