Charity Football Match

Our teams played in an 11-a-side charity football match last Friday, 5th April, at Braintree Town Football Club, to raise money for Mind and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Taking on our sister company eSmart Networks, TriConnex managed to secure the win, raising a whopping £3000 for our chosen charities.

It was a brilliant turnout and every player was brilliant. We thank everyone who came along to support the teams, but also thank everyone who donated and joined in with all the different fundraising activities.

TriConnex visit Energy House 2.0 Manchester

Members of our team visited Energy House 2.0 Manchester on Monday with Barratt Group, to see and learn more about the mind blowing housing technology in the pipeline.

Energy House 2.0 is a specially-built climate chamber that recreates temperatures ranging from -20˚C to +40˚C, as well as simulating wind, rain, snow and solar radiation to replicate the climate in 95% of the earth’s environments.

It will research and test new ways of powering heating and insulating homes, whilst cutting water usage. They will inform the sector about achieving a significant reduction in carbon emissions for new build homes from 2025.

The homes feature a range of new technologies, each of which could contribute to lowering the amount of carbon produced when a home is built, and the carbon footprint of the people who live in the home.

It was great for our Business Development team to see Energy House 2.0 in action and experience the future of housing.
