BMI pitches up with a new flat roof training facility
Following the completion of a new BMI Icopal flat roofing training area, and the refurbishment of the existing BMI Redland pitched training facility, BMI’s National Training Centre is now able to offer contractors, merchants and students an extensive range of both pitched and flat roof courses at the one location. This makes BMI the only UK roofing manufacturer able to offer training in both disciplines and at the one site.
