This project involved the demolition of a number of existing Shop units together with the diversion of Gas & Sprinkler services to accommodate a new 5,000m2 extension.

The new structural frame, predominantly intumescent coated structural steel & metal decking, is clad with an Alucobond rainscreen façade system on Kingspan Karrier insulated panelling. A key element of the front façade is the use of Structural Planar glazing to form a large feature display glass box. Extensive design development was required to ensure that the specified Thermal Performance of the Building was achieved in conjunction with both Billings Design Associates & Geraghty Energy Consultants.

The new structure includes, a new Anchor unit for TK Maxx on the upper three levels, five new Food & Beverage units at ground floor level, a new Management Suite with extensive Security systems, Lifts, Escalators & extensive shop fronts.

Externally, the work scope includes extensive Services diversions, ESB Substation, Taxi Cabin, Shop Mobility facility, Glass Pod outlets and a new & modern paved Plaza area.

  • Extensive Structural Planar Glazing feature to the front elevation
  • Working in a live & busy Retail outlet ensuring unimpeded Footfall to the Shopping Centre.
  • Ensuring that noise levels were maintained so that the adjacent Tenants were not inconvenienced. This was overcome by working nights when necessary.
  • Extensive liaison on a daily basis with Centre Management & Security.
