Happy New Year!

20 years ago the first issue of our magazine came out.

More accurately, it was this magazine's predecessor Construct Ireland, which started landing on the desks of unsuspecting Irish construction professionals in January 2003.

Just imagine that: the audacity of trying to pontificate on sustainable building to people caught in the teeth of the Celtic Tiger.

So much has changed over the proceeding decades, and to mark the occasion our editor Jeff Colley spoke with fellow Construct Ireland co-founder Dan Hyde on the latest episode of Zero Ambitions, a podcast Jeff, Dan and Alex Blondin co-host on decarbonising buildings. PH+ readers are bound to find Zero Ambitions enjoyable and insightful.

The podcast has been going over a year at this point, with a list of guests including Ireland's Minister for the Environment Eamon Ryan, Scotland's Minister for Zero Carbon Housing Patrick Harvie and incoming RIBA president Muyiwa Oki, with other highlights including Lisa Pasquale's deep retrofit to a Glasgow tenement flat, and fascinating contributions from PH+ reporter Kate de Selincourt and columnist Dr Peter Rickaby among countless others.
