The Banks Building Belfast
The Banks building lies at the heart of Belfast City Centre within an area identified as "The Belfast Cross" which is considered the heart of the Shopping Quarter. The building was constructed in 1787 and is placed as Grade B on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The main structure of the Banks building is comprised of a cast iron structural system clad in red Drumfries sandstone. A Gablet roof (or Dutch gable roof) has been provided to the front bay with the remainder of the building provided with flat roofs.
Fortnum and Mason
Consurv Ltd received instructions from Fortnum & Mason to carry out a survey. This survey had taken the form of an appraisal of the structure both internally and externally. Consurv produced a Detailed Assessment Report along with a Thermal Images Report to identify the extent of defects throughout the Fortnum and Mason building. The detailed assessment report and associated drawings enabled the works to be carried out to a high standard and to ensure that nothing was taken away from the buildings historical character.
