Restoration architects sought for UK university project


Queen’s University Belfast is seeking a team of conservation architects for a $2.7m renovation of the façades on its Lanyon Building

The winners will be given the task of restoring the building in Northern Ireland over the next three years.

Designed by English architect Charles Lanyon, the 1849 main university building was inspired by Magdalen College in Oxford.


The Gothic Revival complex features a library, atrium and great hall which was restored by Consarc Conservation in 2002 and won a RIBA Award. The entire estate features more than 250 buildings built over the past 150 years including around 100 listed structures.
