Im a final year student of Architectural Technology doing my dissertation on the concept of glass double facades, their uses and energy-saving benefits. In researching, I understand the vast majority of buildings featuring this facade system are in continental Europe. I was wondering does anybody here know if there are, or intend to be any new office buildings, etc. in Ireland that will feature a similar facade system in the near future? or indeed any other info? Any input is welcome.

I remember schuko were pushing it in Dublin about 6 years ago.
The U2 tower is meant to have a double skin facade as far as I remember.
Cost tends to be prohibitive
