Commenting on the latest episode of the series, David Slattery, head of marketing at Pinergy, said, “The decision to include Mahon Point in this Sussed episode which is exploring sustainable buildings was a no brainer for us.
"They are an industry leader in terms of their sustainable practices and building innovations not just in terms of their energy consumption but all of their non-energy initiatives also. I think Justin’s experience and depth of knowledge in this area will be really beneficial to viewers of our Sussed series.”
