National Gallery of Ireland - Structural Alterations and Major Refurbishment

The National Gallery of Ireland  is located just off Merrion Square in Central Dublin.

This building officialy opened in January 1864

The scope of works includes the Major refurbishment and completion of structural alterations in the Historic Dargan & Milltown Wings of the National Gallery of Ireland.

 

The Dargan and Milltown Wings are the oldest parts of the National Gallery of Ireland and are Protected Structures.

The demolition and alteration works were carried out to best Conservation Practice, great care was taken to minimise the impact on the existing fabric

As part of the reconfiguration & refurbishment works the basement levels in both wings are being completely stripped out, back to the existing structure to permit enabling works to be completed.

 

 

Works being completed by Tinnelly Demolition include:

 

  • Extensive soft strip of the modern fabric and linings within the buildings to permit the installation of modern services and carryout structural interventions within the historic structure.

  • The careful removal and demounting of the historic glass roof structure in the former historic courtyard. The entire structure was retained including all cast and wrought iron elements and the vertical clerestory windows. The modern Georgian wired glass to the roof was discarded. All elements of the roof structure were carefully labelled and photographed throughout the dismantling process.

 

      
      

 

  

  • Demolition of two lift shaft structures at each end of the historic courtyard located centrally between the two historic wings.

   

  • Installation of temporary propping works and creation of major structural openings through the historic wings.

  

  • Installation of temporary works for the support of the upper levels to permit basement enabling works which include the removal and reinstatement of historic cast iron columns.
