The Imperial Hotel is located on South Mall in the heart of Cork City and dates back to the mid 1700’s.  A previously unused stone masonry wall and timber floor section of the property made up of two and three storey buildings in a dilapidated state was refurbished to the highest specification and standard.

FT was appointed as structural engineering consultant to the project design team.  The project brief included retail units and storage facilities at ground floor; function rooms at the first floor level with a business reception area, two meeting rooms and a boardroom.  The design incorporated 16 bedrooms on the second floor linked to the existing hotel and a third floor to include 13 bedrooms

During the construction stage an additional storey was requested by the client.  To this end FT effected a series of alterations to the design to reinforce the already constructed steel frame to support this additional floor.  A lift shaft was also incorporated at this stage.

The design also involved provision of a lightweight corridor structure, 6m high and 20m long, to span across the roof of the fully operational section of the hotel.

FT was responsible for the following elements of the project:

  • Structural survey
  • Structural design and detailing
  • Liaising with other disciplines
  • Construction support.

Together with architectural consultants, Corey Stevens & Associates, FT designed the administration building at the facility.  The Client sought a ‘flag‐ship’ building in terms of innovation, accessibility and sustainability.

The design of the building incorporates many elements which address the Client’s requirement for a sustainable approach to the project.  The layout and orientation provide for passive solar gain, and the construction method involved the use of a timber frame and a cedarwood cladding, both taken from sustainable sources.

Thermal efficiency was enhanced by a high specification of insulation to achieve excellent U‐values.  Water heating requirements are met through an array of solar thermal panels, and photovoltaic cells provide power for wastewater treatment and local site lighting.  Rainwater harvesting has also been installed, with the collected water used for all non‐potable applications in the building.

FT was responsible for the following elements of the project:

  • Structural design and detailing
  • Procurement and specification of works requirements
  • Liaising with other disciplines
  • Construction supervision and support
  • Contract administration
