St Dominic’s Grammar School, Belfast

 

The project included a new 3-storey steel-framed extension, with fenestration and stonework to match the existing B+ Listed school buildings.

A number of additional single and 2-storey steel-framed buildings were constructed around the existing main 4-storey building to cater for Craft, Design & Technology, Music, a dining area, gymnasium, fitness suite and purpose-built sports hall with associated changing facilities.

The superstructure of the sports hall and the minor sports hall are portalised frames with single-storey lean-to frames for associated changing and shower facilities.

Extensive renovation and refurbishment work was made on the Grade B+ listed St Margaret’s Study Hall blocks. Our involvement included structural reports on existing buildings, recommendations for repairs, replacement and renovation of the existing structural fabric in time with the proposed architectural plans. As with all Listed building projects, several unexpected issues arose on site, which Taylor & Boyd acted quickly to resolve, so keeping the contractor on program.

The project was phased to allow the school to remain fully operational throughout the works. (Photographs courtesy of Samuel Stevenson & Sons)
