GBS Roofing secures major £1m Odyssey contract

Holywood-based specialist roofing contractor GBS Roofing, has secured a contract in excess of £1 million with the Odyssey at Queen’s Quay in Belfast.

Established in 2012, GBS Roofing has enjoyed rapid year-on-year growth across its core business of large-scale commercial activities, repair and maintenance services and smaller scale, bespoke roofing design work for a wide range of clients.

This latest contract with the Odyssey will see the firm renew large roof areas of the Pavilion, The SSE Arena and W5 Interactive Discovery Centre, as well as carry out extensive associated repair works. GBS Roofing will commence on site in February 2016 and complete works by December 2016, using products supplied by Sika Ireland throughout.

Barry Mairs, Managing Director, GBS Roofing said: “The opportunity to work on the Odyssey, a key Belfast landmark and globally renowned arena facility, will further enhance our rapidly growing client portfolio and enable GBS Roofing to fully demonstrate its high-quality, specialist roofing capability. 

“This is just one of a number of major contracts secured or completed by GBS Roofing in recent months, including Omagh Hospital, phase 1 of Ulster University’s Belfast campus development and the new NI Hospice on Belfast’s Somerton Road. 

“Over the next 12 months we plan to expand our highly experienced and talented team and further maximise growing market opportunities.”

Brian Hughes, Head of Facilities at the Odyssey added: “With being one of the most successful Millennium projects in the UK, built for the people of Northern Ireland, we are continually focused on ensuring that the building is maintained to the highest standard. With an unrivalled focus on health and safety as well as high-quality delivery, GBS Roofing was the perfect match for our needs.”
