As part of the planning permission for St Kevin’s Hospital protected structure, the external façade is to be retained along with the retention of a selection of other original materials (brick, slate, floor tiles).
The works are for the stabilisation of the existing building, using an external steelwork façade retention system to allow demolition and removal of the majority of the internal fabric, including main roof structure, suspended timber floors and internal steel supports – prior to a main works contractor installing new apartment units within the retained shell of the protected structure.
