Architect: John L O’Hanlon & Associates
Installer: QEF Limited
Type of works: VITRAL Inspiration stainless-steel framed panels incorporate specialist glass with supert low-e laminate, achieving an average U-value of 1.57W/m²K. At 41.5m long, the glazed roof has 10 fully-integrated smoke clearance and comfort vents. Spanning 3.6m, the roof glazing is a 30º self-supporting double-pitch.

An opportunity to build a new retail outlet on a Greenfield site on the edge of Arklow facilitated the development of a state-of-the-art premises embracing P Boland’s expansion plans. A self-build project, the family selected their own engineer who worked alongside VITRAL and their installers to plan and deliver a modern and spacious retail environment fit for the 21st century. The superb stainless-steel finish and quality of the VITRAL Inspiration roof-glazing system complements the building and provides low-maintenance, energy-saving natural light and ventilation.

Darren Fogarty, Director at P Boland Limited said: “The system allows an amazing amount of natural light into the building, reducing the number of lights required. The stainless-steel looks stunning and requires minimal maintenance. The integrated natural ventilation keeps the building comfortable for both employees and customers.”

Reay Brandon at QEF Limited also commented: “Due to its unique pre-fabricated design, the system is quick and easy to install, reducing on-site costs and ensuring consistency in quality.”
