Rory Bergin joined HTA as an architect in 1993 and became an associate in 1999, and a partner in 2013. In 2007 he formed HTA's Sustainable Futures unit to further his interest in sustainability and to expand the range of services HTA can offer.
Rory’s role is to promote sustainable and innovative design, enabling HTA to achieve its objective of leading the field in sustainable placemaking.
He leads a team of specialists who are expert in subjects including SAP, BREEAM New Construction, Home Quality Mark, Code for Sustainable Homes, PassivHaus, SBEM, Post Occupancy Evaluation, Life Cycle Assessment and BREEAM Communities. He has an input into most projects, overseeing the practice’s implementation of sustainable design and appropriate sustainability tools.
Rory and his team are responsible for the sustainability consultancy on some of the UK’s highest profile housing projects including Hanham Hall, the UK’s largest zero carbon residential project now completed. Rory played a pivotal role on the project during the bid stage and has since successfully steered this groundbreaking project through the complex maze of standards that the project has met.
