Home of an Irish poet
The new state of the art centre “Seamus Heaney Home Place” in Bellaghy, Northern Ireland has recently been completed. The façade of the building has been finished in various materials that blend harmoniously with the Swisspearl® fibre cement cladding panels.
The building designed by Architects WM Given located in Coleraine, Northern Ireland chose the Swisspearl® cladding, not only because of the wide variety of colours available, but also of its’ excellent environmental properties and longevity. The panels are 100% environmentally friendly since neither the raw materials nor the production process contain any harmful substances. The fibre cement panels are made from 95% of natural raw materials from the Swiss mountains: cement, pulverized limestone, water and air. This ensures an effective protection of material resources, avoiding unnecessary transport distances when the product is manufactured.
The Swisspearl® panels were installed by Thornton Roofing and the sub-frame System uses a Kingspan insulated Karrier panel to which the Swisspearl Panel is attached.
We were impressed by the wide range of colours and finishes Swisspearl had to offer. Everything from the quality of the product to delivery and application onsite helped to ensure that this project was finished to the highest standard.
