"Good quality architectural restoration relies on good quality contractors and materials. The restoration of the Royal Belfast Academical Institution from 2012-2016 drew upon knowledge and skill from across UK and Ireland. Presented by the Architect overseeing the works, this talk reveals the story behind the restoration of Sir John Soane’s only completed building in Ireland.”
Peter is a director of Alastair Coey Architects and has been responsible for projects including the £2M restoration of Grade A listed Royal Belfast Academical Institution and the £3M restoration of Grade II* listed St George’s Hall, Bradford. Peter has completed the RSUA Conservation Diploma and was admitted to the RIBA Conservation Register in 2012.
The talk is free to BLFI members. Guests are very welcome to join us at 6.30 pm. We would be grateful for non-members for a €10 donation to BLFI or if they join the membership.
