Methodist College, Belfast
The project involved the full refurbishment of the McArthur Hall building, involving extensive repair and remedial work to the listed building façade, internal structure and layout of the building, together with two new steel framed classroom extensions to the rear courtyard of this ‘U-shaped’ existing listed building.
Internally within the building there were extensive timber conditions surveys of all floors, the roof structure, and walls (where timbers were embedded into these), these surveys, provided as the basis for a repair strategy on the structural fabric of the building. Detailed joist repairs using splice details and truss seating repairs, using timber replacement and steelwork ‘shoes’ were developed on each and every defect of this listed building in accordance with best practice for the structural conservation of historically significant buildings.View More Projects
