Brendan Merry & Partners are delighted to be nearing completion on the proposed refurbishment of the Basement level of the Ussher Library to create an Interim Study Centre in Trinity College Dublin.

The Study Centre will act as the joint reading room for Early Printed Books, Special Collections, and Manuscripts and Archives collections. In addition to this a new Secure Locked Storage Area, Seminar Room and Office space has been provided as part of the project to allow for the secure storage, review and cataloguing of some of these rare and unique texts.

The proposed works are being carried out by Darragh Elliott and the Elliott Group and are scheduled to be complete just before Christmas. There have been a number of complex hurdles to overcome with this basement project, including the provision of ventilation within new glazed screens, smoke downstands and services routes through the existing building, all of which have been handled exceptionally well by both the Design Team (TAKA Architect’s, CORA Consulting Engineers and Metec Consulting Engineers) and Elliott Group.
