Malachy Walsh and Partners, Engineering St. Angela’s College Lecture

05 May 2015

Malachy Walsh and Partners, Engineering St. Angela’s College Lecture

St. Angela’s College was founded in 1887 and is situated on the south face of St. Patrick’s Hill in Cork City Centre on a site that slopes at over 1 in 4 at the site entrance. The re-development of the College campus involved the careful demolition of a number of site buildings and structures and the sensitive upgrading of 4 discrete listed buildings. Four additional new building blocks up to 5 storeys high over a double storey basement interlink the upgraded buildings on this challenging urban site.

In this lecture, John Lee of Malachy Walsh and Partners will explain some of the challenges presented by the site and outline how the contemporary design developed by O’Donnell and Tuomey Architects was realised in an Engineering context. David McCarthy of L and M Keating Civil and Engineering Contractors will discuss how project was executed through the construction phase. Lance Armstrong dismounted at this point in the 2009 Tour of Ireland but the Hill is not too steep for the Pupils and Staff of St. Angela’s College. Obtaining the DAC was a challenge!

Date: 6.30pm, Tuesday 5th May, 2015

Location: Room 281, DIT Bolton Street, Dublin
