Completed in time for the April 2012 centenary of the Titanic's maiden voyage, the Titanic Signature Building is a world-class maritime museum and visitor centre in the heart of Belfast dedicated to the RMS Titanic. The structure is the largest of its kind ever built in Northern Ireland.
To acknowledge the story of the RMS Titanic and the maritime industry of Belfast during that time, Kingspan set about delivering a bespoke build solution that would complement the architectural vision for the project.
Beneath the iconic zinc roof of the building that has redefined the Belfast skyline, architects specified Kingspan Insulation. The roof has a shimmering effect in sunlight, complementing the concept for the building design which replicated four 38 m (126 ft) high pointed hulls, the same height as the RMS Titanic.
Adding to the building’s thermal credentials, Kingspan Insulation was also used as part of the Timber and Steel Framing Systems to deliver superior thermal performance throughout the build for a comfortable visitor experience.
The building is the centrepiece of the regeneration of Belfast's Dockyards, now known as the Titanic Quarter.
