Termoneeny Community Centre
Our practice were the team leader for the joint venture between Lavey GAC and Termoneeney Community Group. We worked closely with the community from an early stage to analyse needs, costs, funding and to develop their brief whilst testing various feasibility issues.
The building features a 60 x 35 m indoor arena, with a translucent custom engineered fabric superstructure made by RUBB Buildings in Newcastle, England. This is anchored to the ground by 5 m high gable and 2.5 m longitudinal sidewalls of shuttered reinforced concrete. This structural ballast also functions as a rebound wall for internal sporting activities, such as Gaelic football, hurling, camogie and soccer.
