Mount Merrion Parish Church, Belfast -Restoration of Glulam Columns Instead of Replacement



Tate Stevenson Architects are due to start the restoration and refurbishment of the listed Mount Merrion Parish Church in Belfast shortly. The church was designed by Dennis O'Donoghue Hanna and built and consecrated in March 1953. Work originally started in April 1955.

We will post up reports on how the project is progressing.

The above photos show the degradation of the original Glulam columns. The glue used to hold the layers of timber have been affected by exposure to the elements. The columns are unsafe due to this unbonding process. Footings have been previously replaced due to the lower timber being continuously moist. These lower replaced elements will be renewed again.
