A fully bespoke aluminium brise soleil was designed for this gradually faceted facetted glazed façade. The curtain walling façade is the Wicona Wictec 50 capped system. The top hung opening vents are frameless Wicline 90 SG system and use Dow Corning 993 structural silicone glazing ( SSG) to create the frameless effect.
The building received the Irish Building & Design Award 2014 for Sustainable/Green Project of the Year. The project was also awarded LEED Gold certification by the US Green Building Council.
