#EighthPlinth... What's your favourite Ecobuild product?

On our stand at Ecobuild 2013, S928, we will be showcasing products which we feel are particularly noteworthy in a mini eco-product gallery. Selected products from across the industry will be presented with an impartial description on why they were chosen. Many of these products are not being displayed elsewhere at Ecobuild. 

However, we have taken inspiration from the Fourth Plinth Project in Trafalgar Square and have allocated a space in our mini gallery for a yet-unknown item. One plinth known as ‘The Eighth Plinth’ will be marked with a prominent question mark. This is reserved for a product or service that is already being exhibited at Ecobuild. In the lead up to the show you can nominate any product that you know will be showcased (including your own if you're a manufacturer exhibiting) and throughout the show The Building Centre staff will be searching high and low, reviewing all the nominations, and choosing the final exhibit. 

You can nominate by:


  •  "Nominate [Product Name + Stand Number] for the @BuildingCentre #Ecobuild #eighthplinth"
  • Adding a comment below
  • Visiting stand S928 and leaving product details
  • Or emailing with '#EighthPlinth' in the subject line.


Nominated products must be exhibited at Ecobuild. The chosen product will be included in e-shots to an audience of over 30,000 people. It will also be in The Building Centre newsletter and promoted via Ecobuild itself.

What will be on The Eighth Plinth? Nominations are open from today!
