A new restoration project for Queens University

Woodvale have been appointed for the contract to refurbish and restore the old Queens University Library – the Lynn building which sites adjacent the iconic Lanyon building.

The Lynn building was constructed between 1866 and 1868 and is one of the best examples of Ruskinian Victorian gothic architecture in Belfast.

Works will include the internal and external refurbishment of the library itself and some minor works to be carried out to the nearby music building.

The refurbished centre will form the university’s new international and postgraduate centre with a number of multipurpose social and function spaces.

Woodvale will work closely with the client and the design team to enhance this building, retaining its historic integrity and increasing the accessibility of the building to all users.

Work is expected to complete in January 2015
