Building

The areas of growth within the construction industry in the coming years will mainly be in retrofitting and energy efficiency. The Green Works Building Programme is designed to provide students with the necessary skills needed to work in these areas of construction over the next decade and beyond.

Building in Ireland has had one of the worst environmental impacts of any industry in this country.  To change this requires a radical transformation of the way we create and refurbish our buildings.

We need to learn to construct in a way that eliminates carbon emissions from buildings, from materials that do not impact on the health of its inhabitants or the planet, while considering the wider connections to community and transport infrastructure. These courses will provide students with an insight as to how this can be achieved.
