Design Flexibility

This project incorporated a number of specialist fabrications to enhance the building features. Soffits, Fascias, Bullnoses, Beam Wraps and Column Casings made from high-quality coated aluminium and ACM (Aluminium Composite Material) were used to adorn the building. The form of the soffits and bullnoses followed a number of faceted curves around the feature canopies, as well as covering the large area of the grandstand canopy.

The Final Touches

The fabrications on this project were required to complement the high-quality finishes used such as glass curtain walling, and the project demonstrates Kingspan as a supplier of stand-alone high-quality architectural fabrications even in applications not associated with Kingspan panels. Kingspan’s technical team worked closely with the installer, Kovara Projects Ltd, to create bespoke fabrications which enhanced the features of this building. The fabrications provide the final touches to this building envelope and offer a high-performance and unique architectural solution.
