ALTERATIONS 

The Grand Opera House, Belfast (Refurbishment / New Bars)

In 2021 I was appointed to prepare detailed drawings for the refurbishment of the Grand Opera House, it was closed as work being carried out throughout the covid pandemic to refurbish the interior of this historic and much loved theatre.

 

I was delighted to be involved and spent a few weeks preparing over 80 detailed drawings.

Great that it was officially reopened by Prince Charles following the £12.2million revamp. The Prince of Wales was greeted on stage by legendary pantomime dame May McFettridge and the pair shared a joke. The prince then unveiled a plaque to commemorate his visit and mark the theatre’s official reopening.

 

I am just delighted to have been trusted and appointed to prepare all the detailed drawings, especially of the four bars

  • Stalls Bar

  • Shakespeare Bar

  • Upper Circle Bar

  • VIP Bar

Also helping with the confectionery counters, reception box office, stalls, toilets, seating, auditorium and foyer.

Kilmakee Park, Gilnahirk (New kitchen / making the ground floor open-plan)

This was a traditional semi-detached home in Belfast that my client had just bought. A lovely home in a great area but to fully satisfy my client she wanted the downstairs accommodation to be open-plan with the removal of two walls and a new larger Kitchen. This open-plan space is now wonderful with easy access to the garden via the new double glazed sliding doors.

Brownlow Street, Comber, County Down (Full refurbishment)

A complete refurbishment of this old property, a modernisation which mainly included making the ground floor accommodation open plan living and renewing the narrow staircase. On the first floor the new single flight provided a safer and better landing area to access the bedrooms. The refurbished sunroom provided new glazing, a new pitched room and full ceiling height. All rooms redecorated and a Velux Sun Tunnel added to the new WC / Shower.
