RIAI Walks + Talks: Bord Gáis with DBA Architects

Saturday, 8 March
10:00 am
Booked out. 

Denis Byrne Architects from DBA Architects will give a tour of the Bord Gáis Networks Services Centre.

The new Bord Gáis Networks Services Centre is strategically placed in direct proximity to the M50 motorway in Finglas, Dublin. The 5,200m2 building consolidates the Dublin operations of Bord Gáis Networks in one single location and incorporating a number of Bord Gáis Networks primary operational functions. A layer of perforated silver anodised aluminium panels wraps the building as a light, permeable yet robust and protective skin that expresses and reacts sensitively to the operational programme, the external microclimate and the building’s solar orientation. The award-winning building evolved from the winning entry of a two stage RIAI/BordGais International Architectural Competition held in 2008.
