Dublin’s St Patrick’s Cathedral Renovation Completed

Eight hundred years after it was built, Dublin’s St Patrick’s Cathedral has been renovated.

PUNCH are delighted that conservation works have been completed at St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin 8, where we were the Structural Engineers.

The Cathedral was founded in 1191, and approximately 600,000 people per annum visit this historic building, which is listed as a National Monument and Protected Structure.

The project included restoration of the high-level roofs, refurbishment of clerestory windows, parapet capping & stone works, cleaning of turrets and pinnacles, with also installing new access walkways, ladders and platforms within the extensive attic of the Cathedral. At €9.4 million, it is one of the largest conservation projects in the country.

We are honoured to have provided our Engineering Conservation skills to help preserve this National treasure.
