Silverbridge Centre, County Mayo

Client: Silverbridge Centre
Architect: John Fleming Architects
Contractor: Micheal Conway & Sons
Installer: QEF Limited
Type of works: 264 VITRAL Inspiration stainless-steel framed panels provide both the roof-glazing and vertical-glazing application. 24 fully-integrated smoke clearance panels are thermostaticlaly controlled for comfort venting. At 100m long and spanning 6m, the roof is a 20º two-tier mono-pitch design.

The Silverbridge Centre is a mixed-use town centre development in Claremorris, County Mayo. Providing residential, commercial and retail amenities for the community and surrounding areas, the Centre is anchored by a retail facility.

The project brief required the enclosure of this 600 sq m shopping centre with a glazing system which would provide the maximum amount of daylight with the minimum amount of visible structure.

Rory O’Moore from John Fleming Architects said: “Contained within the brief was a requirement to naturally ventilate the mall and provide a sizeable smoke extraction system. The VITRAL system, being a self-supported hinged system, allowed the flexibility to achieve these project goals without complex secondary support structures.”

Peter Conway at Michael Conway & Sons also said: “The stylish VITRAL system allowed us to provide glazed gable elevations to the mall entrances, integrating fully with the surrounding external finishes.”
