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.

Cygnum – Building towards a cleaner, greener future.

DIY SOS : THE BIG BUILD

DIY SOS: The Big Build! It’s the last push on-site in Sligo to deliver a life-changing, home renovation for a very deserving family.

Cygnum is delighted to be back on-site with Baz and the DIY SOS team for series 3.

The call-out for support has been overwhelming. Local volunteers and businesses, national trades, and suppliers have all come together to help make a real difference.

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

Stunning Cedar Clad House

We are very happy to share this stunning cedar-clad house recently completed in Cork.

Cygnum’s certified U values and thermal bridge models give our clients the comfort of knowing that our products offer the highest performance. The data can be used in BER calculations to ensure that all elements of the build, including heating systems, are cost-effective.

Munster Site Update

It’s full speed ahead on this large housing development in Munster! A growing skills shortage in the construction sector is reinforcing the need to adopt offsite construction and manufacturing to deliver speed, scale, and quality housing.

Programme certainty enables our clients to schedule follow on trades months before they are required.
