MERCHANT SQUARE, BELFAST
MERCHANT SQUARE, BELFAST – 03/08/2020
Delivered within the heart of Belfast’s vibrant city centre Merchant Square has been transformed into one of the city’s most iconic and catalyst structures. Initially three separate 7 & 8 storey buildings comprising of Oyster House, Ferguson House & Royston House each building was stripped back to the core and meticulously stitched back together to form one cohesive 220,000 sq.ft office space. The statement building was delivered through a mixture of new build and extensive structural refurbishment works.
In total we installed over 200 mini driven piles, 48 CFA piles and 1000 tonne of structural steel alongside the removal of 465 tonne of existing concrete façade panels. Installation of a new Unitised façade System provided floor to ceiling glazing to maximise daylight into the building. The distinctive rust like appearance of the weathered Corten provides a multitude of autumnal colours with the rear courtyard completed with a glazed curtain walling system and Kingspan panelling.
