    Project Summary

    In 2003 having carried out numerous smaller interventions in the building over the preceding 2 decades, Lissadell were selected to carry out major works in the Royal College of Physicians at No 6 Kildare Street. This time it would involve a total reimagining of the space changing it from an administrative / teaching building to a state of the art multi venue conference centre. The project, designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects, remained respectful of the historic parts of the building while also accommodating some significant remodelling to later additions and previously underutilised space.

    Works included a complete overhaul of the existing M&E infrastructure throughout the building to meet modern and even future demands as far as was foreseeable or possible. This necessitated significant services coordination as well as construction of two over roof structural steel decks to accommodate over 300 square metres of mechanical plant ‘room’.

    Construction of 6 new lifts for a variety of purposes including a new passenger lift in a previously underused lightwell to reach all levels. This was essential in bringing the building up to accessibility standards and utilised hydraulic lift technology due to the restricted space.

    Additional structural interventions were carried out to accommodate an 8m x5m motorised stage lift in the ????room which rises out of the floor. This brings a multifunctionality to the room allowing staff to transform it from a lecture space to a fine dining room at the flick of a switch.
