Tesco Maynooth

Part of the Carton Park Shopping Centre this was the first Tesco Format 80 Supermarket on stilts constructed in Ireland. The €45M project was delivered by Precision Construction. The choice to facade treatment was Spanwall RF50 with a 1.5mm stainless steel finish. Tesco had been using traditional handset stone/ceramic granite facade system but to reduce the weight on the Format 80 building selected the much lighter 1.5mm Stainless Steel rainscreen panel system from Spanwall. The stepped-out areas retained the traditional handset granite cladding providing a contrast between materials and colour. To mimic the granite facade the Spanwall panels were produced in various modules and installed in a staggered pattern to all the elevations. The pop-out windows add a final splash of colour to the building. The Spanwall RF50 panel system was installed by PJ Quinn Limited.
