Queen’s University Belfast

We completed this project in successful partnership with Queens Estates Department after a detailed public procurement process.

Our capability and capacity to undertake a project of this scale within a two month time frame was central to the award of the contract. Delivered within a live university campus, careful programming and co-ordination was vital between the Client and Specialist Joinery Group.

Power and data services were incorporated into the furniture to meet student requirements.

The project was awarded a prize by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for its sustainable design.


Named after the late Sir Allen McClay, the awarding winning £50 million library is illuminated by a multi-storey open atrium, has 2,000 reader places and houses 1.2m volumes. It is the epitome of sustainable design.
