The new offices are located in the Medieval Quarter of Dungarvan Town, and are nestled among many protected structures. Working closely with Rose Royale of Waterford County Council, we were not only able to comply with the preservation requirements to the structure, but were also able to improve the overall look of the street scape, and achieve a building that is Eco considerate as well as being an eye catching landmark.
Eco friendly insulation materials, sliding timber sash windows, environmentally friendly plumbing choices and low LED lighting were just some of the material choice’s made to ensure that the fabric of the building was both environmentally friendly as well as efficient to run and maintain in the longer term.
As part of the works to the new offices, Terra Nua have also begun to monitor more closely, company vehicle choice, fuel consumption, water and electrical consumption, as well as increasing our voluntary engagement with schools and GAA and other sporting organisations in regard to fundraising recycling projects. We believe that by engaging with young and old alike in non commercial activity on important matters like recycling, it helps build and maintain relationships within the wider social community.
It is our experience that when you get people to think about the eco agenda as being just about “how some things get done around here” it becomes the norm as opposed to being the exception. We believe that this is good for the wider community in general, good for the environment and good for building relationships on which business may be done sometime in the future.
In the meantime we are happy to invite members of the public to view the works to our new offices, and welcome people who just want to look around and see what can be done with a little bit of thought and planning.
