Queen's University's Integrated Medical Centre

Formerly an empty office building, the Grade 1 Listed Elmwood Manse just off Elmwood Avenue in Belfast was repaired, remodelled and extended.

This 10-month project has created a world-class Integrated Medical Centre for the university.

 

This construction project comprised the complete repair, conservation, extension and conversion of Elmswood Manse, a Grade 1 listed building, which was formerly the Manse to the adjacent Grade 1 listed Elmwood Church, as well as the demolition of the existing non-listed extensions and their replacement with a new two-storey extension.

 

The existing building – which was also previously used as offices - was a three-storey structure located off the main University Road in Belfast within the busy live QUB campus. The building originally consisted of a three-storey portion known as The Manse Building but, over time, a two-storey extension was added. The Manse, parts of the building and, in particular, the stairs were noted as all having Listed status.

 

As a result, these Listed elements had to be retained and restored, with the team from McAleer & Teague Ltd. carrying out the demolition of the existing non-listed extensions, which were replaced with a new two-storey extension.
