APA Facade Systems are proud to announce that we are now a member of the Irish Green Building Council. The IGBC, a non-profit organisation was launched in 2011 with organisations and businesses from the entire value chain of the built environment. These include universities, professional institutes, NGOs local authorities, contractors, architects, engineers, energy companies, leading national and transnational companies. All are united in one common goal to accelerate the transformation of the built environment, related industry and supply chain to one that is sustainable through leadership, research, education, and providing policy input to national and local government.
The IGBC is now Ireland’s leading authority on green building best practices with a network of over 160-member organisations spanning the entire built environment industry.
APA Facade Systems have always been committed to excellent practice towards a greener, more sustainable environment. We organised a fantastic conference with TU Dublin in Cork last year – Delivering Commercial nZEB in Páirc Uí Chaoimh. The conference looked into nZEB Standard design through presentations of leading Irish and international building design professionals, a breakout session focused on technical solutions and an alternate round table session where managers could explore ways to re-orient their teams to nZEB through discussion with peers and international experts.
