Engineering the Past to Meet the Needs of the Future

Best practice installation of mechanical and electrical services into historic buildings

June 2017


Grainne Shaffrey, Tomas O’Connor (Shaffrey Associates Architects ) and Edith Blennerhasset (Arup) Present 14 Henrietta Street, Dublin Tenement Museum: townhouse as museum

The presentation will set the context for the works, with a brief history of the project and describing the design approach and principles which guided us in our decision making and detailed design. We will look in some detail at how architect and engineer worked together in developing and agreeing solutions. We will also focus on some of the bespoke solutions developed in response to building standards and codes. Some of these may be more transferable than others. We will probably also touch on some of the frustrations and ‘roadblocks’ we couldn’t get through. An overriding message in our presentation will be the importance of collaboration and team work.
