Team Involved

OPW,Architectural Division, lead by Mr David Byers. Project Managers: Horgan Lynch & Partners lead by Donal Lynch Conservation Consultant: Consurv LTD Quantity Surveyors: Duffy Gaffey and VBEvans.

Farmleigh House, situated in Dublin is a historic guest house that was formerly the residence of the Guinness family. Conserv were employed to carry out a series of surveys and analysis both pre contract and during contract, to investigate the extent of the damage to the building as part of restoring this beautiful house. He was also overseeing the conservation works during this project.

The most important aspect of restoring this house was compiling a detailed analysis of the fabric of the building and its’ historic finishes. The building had a large number of 17th century Austrian Oak panels and 17th century Italian Silk hangings and through his analysis and non destructive techniques, Dr. Brennan was able to produce a detailed recording of the fabric of the building without removing any of the historic finishes.

Our Report

In our survey of this buildings structural and aesthetic condition we carried out a roof survey to assess both the structural condition and for signs of any water ingress from lead flashing and faulty gutters. Our Facade, wall and flooring inspections were carried out with minimal destructive process and we were able to recommend for value engineering process to save the client money while preserving all original details and historic features
