Restoration of St. John’s Cathedral in Limerick

Project Description:

Works to historic building in particular refurbishment work to Protected Structures and included works within archaeologically sensitive areas that involved the careful excavation and integration of new works with existing structures of archaeological significance

Works within a ‘live’ working environment, in particular involving works to buildings that were in-use by members of the public during construction and works that involved phased-construction including the co-ordination / sequencing of construction and the decanting of staff

Stewart were awarded this heritage contract which was one of the first conservation projects that was completed within a given timeframe despite the fact that the cathedral remained operational for the duration of the works, daily masses, funerals, weddings were a common occurrence which greatly added to the complexity of completing this project on time within budget and with no accidents/ incidents to report.
