With a personal interest in all things sustainable, Rory Bergin is the Head of Sustainability for HTA Design. He was a keynote speaker at the event. His talk was entitled MMC delivers massive carbon savings.
Modular construction is a trending topic as we remain in the liminal space between traditional construction methods and new more sustainable construction methods. There are many benefits to this method of construction including it being cleaner, quieter and reduces the amount of traffic on the site.
Rory has over 25 years of experience in the architecture profession. In the last 10 of these, he has set up and run the Sustainable Features team at HTA Design. As a personal goal, Rory wishes to be at the forefront of sustainable housing design.
He believes that his involvement with award-winning and cutting-edge projects like Hanham Hall has helped him achieve this goal.
Rory’s ambition is to deliver some ground-breaking innovative sustainable designs that set the standard for the new generation of environmentally, socially and economically sustainable places.
“Volumetric construction is about 40-45, 50% less energy-intensive than traditional construction”
