Awards – Titanic Hotel Belfast – 11th St Gobain Award

Since the 1880s Harland & Wolff Headquarters building, known locally as the Drawing Office, was the nerve centre for the largest shipyard in the world. Thousands of ships were designed in the Drawing Offices and constructed on the adjoining slipways, including the White Star liners – Olympic, Titanic and Britannic and naval warship HMS Belfast. After two years of construction and restoration, Belfast’s Titanic Hotel has officially opened to the public. The hotel has augmented the already abundant natural light with skylights run the length of both rooms with more glass along the entire front of the hotel.

Heritage spaces retained in the development include the board room, directors’ entrance lobby and former directors’ offices which are also preserved. All “authentic spaces” have been retained in the building including the Telephone Exchange, which received the first communication of RMS Titanic hitting the iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912.

Awards – Titanic Signature Building Belfast – 8th St. Gobain Award

Key Achievements

– Required performance criteria met, whilst achieving a high level of aesthetic detail

– Visually striking building with an interior finish which mirrors the overall effect through intelligent design and high levels of workmanship.

– Strong technical support from Gyproc specification team ensured the project was delivered to the high standards required.

Jury comment

“The building itself is visually striking and the interior finish mirrors the overall effect by intelligent design, excellent functionality and high levels of workmanship”. One of the key challenges of the project was to develop a bespoke wall lining system that could be fixed to the exterior cladding rails and mirror the angle of the structural wing-tips.

McLaughlin Taylor Drylining Ltd specialises in interior fit-outs including partitioning, ceilings and passive fire protection. Martin has been in business for over 10 years and has worked on many landmark projects throughout the island of Ireland.

Key Challenges

Development of a bespoke wall lining system that could be fixed to the exterior cladding rails and mirror the angle of the structural wing-tips. Local fire regulations had to be met to make the building fit for public use Due to the cavernous nature of certain areas of the building, high levels of reverberation were an issue. Due to the high levels of public traffic, impact damage was a concern, in certain areas.
