Scott Tallon Walker Architects has championed the inherent benefits of sustainability to the construction industry for many years which we believe are central to the creation of healthy, uplifting buildings and environments that benefit us all as a global community. The construction industry as a whole must play a key role in ensuring that energy consumption and carbon emissions are reduced. It is our responsibility as architects, to lead this discussion and work with clients to deliver exemplar projects.
The necessary reductions in building energy usage and CO₂ emissions cannot be achieved without rigorous building design. Fundamental architectural principles, such as building orientation, extent of glazing or shading, thermal mass, and ventilation are vital to providing cost-optimal high-performance buildings which meets our client's needs.
Scott Tallon Walker has been an active member of the Irish Green Building Council since 2015, and has established an in-house ‘Sustainability Design Group’ to research new sustainable technologies and materials. Thanks to skilled enthusiastic members of staff, we can ensure that all projects are developed with key sustainable design philosophies in mind from inception to completion.
