Delivering Commercial nZEB Was A Huge Success

We are delighted to announce that Delivering Commercial nZEB in Páirc Uí Chaoimh was a hugely successful conference. Following the feedback we received from the attendees, everyone at the conference came home with valuable information they can bring to future projects. We would like to sincerely thank all who helped to make this event so enjoyable.

Thank you to our international and national speakers for your fantastic presentations. It would not have been such an educational day without you, your participation is greatly appreciated. We must also say a special thank you to the staff of Páirc Uí Chaoimh who couldn’t have done more on the day to satisfy our needs.

Last but certainly not least, thank you to TU Dublin and the sponsors APA Facade Systems, Carey Glass and SE Controls. With their sponsorship and over 120 industry-leading professionals attending Delivering Commercial nZEB, we were able to raise over €6000 for the Cork Simon Community. An absolutely fantastic achievement that will help the on-going homeless crisis in Cork City.
