Kerry’s new Gaelic Athletic Association Centre of Excellence, in Currans, has benefitted from BEMO’s unrivalled rollforming technology. Creating the unique circular shape presented unique challenges.

The architectural intent required tapered standing seam panels in continuous lengths of up to 18.3 metres, avoiding the need for welded end laps which can create a potential weak point and a less desirable appearance. Thanks to long term investment in software and technology, the patented BEMO-MONRO system was used to ensure the extreme lengths and widths could easily be accommodated.

Over 2200m² of tapered panels were required, with the most extreme geometry reserved for the longest lengths: tapers with a maximum width of 680mm and minimum of 110mm.
