This never fails to impress!

Out on site today, watching our experienced site teams deliver quality housing at speed and scale.

At Cygnum we are ready to tackle the housing crisis with increased efficiency and reliability while minimising waste of materials on site.

Super Solar Power!

Reducing our carbon footprint and fossil fuel consumption is a top priority at Cygnum. We recently installed solar panels on the roof of our

manufacturing plant and offices.

Adopting a solar renewable energy system will help us to reduce our CO2 emissions by approximately 60 tonnes per year.

Manufacturing Tour with the Students from TUD

It was a pleasure to welcome the students of Technological University Dublin for a manufacturing tour. The students are currently studying for their degree in Sustainable Timber Technology, so there were lots of questions and plenty of enthusiasm regarding design, production, and CNC capabilities.

We are happy to report that the future of sustainable timber technology is in safe hands!

Cygnum’s Innovative #MMC Systems

Cygnum’s innovative #MMC systems directly impact a building project’s sustainability and carbon content, acting as a carbon sink for the life of the building.

Our manufacturing processes guarantee minimal waste by utilising precision custom CNC machinery. Programme certainty enables our clients to deliver speed, scale, and quality housing.

Work Safe At Height

Cygnum is a proud partner of #CIFsafety22. Today’s theme examines the importance of working safely at height.

When working at height we assess the dangers and plan accordingly. Our site teams ensure the correct PPE gear is worn at all times. Fall arrest netting to the underside of trusses is fitted to enable the work to be carried out safely.

Embodied Carbon Report

The data in the new report on Embodied Carbon from the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Local Government, and Heritage speaks for itself.

Accelerating the use of timber in construction is vital to meet the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2021 commitments of net zero carbon by 2050, and achieve a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.

The report states ‘It is apparent that unless steps are taken to address the issue there will be a significant increase in construction-related carbon emissions.’ https://bit.ly/3ScgUJY
