ESBI thE rECEnt Woodcollective Exhibition, as part of Innovation dublin Festival, documented the 2010 collaborative project at Electric Picnic between industry, research organisations and State agencies. the project was supported by COFOrd, Wood Marketing Federation, Glennon Brothers and ESB. this year’s expanded project featured three structures, including the ‘Crashing Wave’ structure premiated in International Juried Competition in norway in May. all structures were prefabricated, demountable and reusable for other events. the sustainable lighting collaboration by ESB certainly had the ‘WOW!’ factor largely due to Kevin ryan who managed the ‘Picnic Power’ site build. the objective was to raise awareness, question assumptions and generate ideas about wood as a renewable, sustainable and versatile resource. the interpretative materials demonstrated innovative use of timber highlighting the wood product life cycle, wood fuels and the context of carbon sequestration. the installation became a popular meeting point for many of the 30,000 attendance at the festival. In June of this year, Eugene Boyle, coordinator of the project, was an assessor on the third level Wood design awards and a number of those entries will be exhibited in AMS Team’s first group workshop in Athlone ESBI ESBI EnGInEErInG Solutions’ asset Management Services team (aMS) held a workshop in athlone on thursday October 21st.

Speaking at the conclusion of the event, aMS Manager Mick Sherlock said, “this workshop proved a huge success and the event acted as an opportunity for the team to interact as a whole with the SMt to address specific work-life balance and safety issues. Most importantly, it acted as an ideal platform for our younger members of staff to showcase their talents and to gain experience from their colleagues, and we look forward to conducting a similar exercise again in the future”. a special note of thanks was made to Maureen Ferguson whose event organisation skills are second to none. n The ‘Crashing Wave’ structure premiated in International Juried Competition in Bergen, Norway in May.
