VMZINC used for Derry centre of sporting excellence

The Foyle Arena at St Columb’s Park Derry

In association with

The £12.7m Foyle Arena in St Columb’s Park Derry, designed by architects Samuel Stevenson & Sons, features VMZINC single and double lock standing seam roofs and façades in QUARTZ-ZINC and QUARTZ-ZINC PLUS.

Funded by Derry City and Strabane District Councils, it will be a centre of excellence for climbing, judo and wrestling, though its extensive facilities also include a 25 metre swimming pool with movable floor, a separate children's pool and twelve floodlit, synthetic five-a-side football pitches.

The roof of the 36 metre, multi-purpose hall has been designed to provide a column-free zone with monopitch trusses supported on two ridge girders. VMZINC PLUS has a protective underside coating which enables the warm roof construction to be non-ventilated and compact. Its installation was undertaken by specialist Edgeline Metal Roofing of Magherafelt.
