For the past 14 months, the Townmore team has been working on a transformative new mixed-use residential development at Southern Cross in Bray, County Wicklow for Lioncor Developments. After a short break over Christmas and New Year, the project team members are back on site and great progress is being made this week.
Earlier this year the Townmore staff set the ambitious target of walking a combined 5 million steps in order to raise much-needed funds for Dóchas, a charitable organisation providing holistic cancer support services to people whose lives have been impacted by cancer.
Traditional construction is changing. Digitisation and decarbonisation are the main drivers of this change, however, there is still a huge amount of confusion around what sustainability really looks like for this industry. In fact, the wider built environment has been criticised in recent months for ‘greenwashing’ its sustainability credentials and promoting activities that fail to make a meaningful positive impact on the environment and ignoring some of the bigger challenges.
In 2018, the Construction Sector Group, or CSG, was set up by the Government to act as a communications bridge between policymakers and the industry, tasked with ensuring regular and open dialogue between government and members of the industry. At the core, this initiative is intended to ensure that all parties across the public and private sector are working towards the common aim of delivering Project Ireland 2040.
Climate talks at COP26 in Glasgow have dominated national and industry news in recent weeks. For several years, decarbonisation and climate action have been recognised amongst the critical challenges being faced by the construction industry - alongside digital transformation - however, there is now a growing sense of urgency. For people new to the climate-action movement, COP26 is the 26th annual Conference of the Parties, which is an international UN summit that brings global collaborators together to address issues around climate change and to share learnings as we transition to a low carbon economy.
