McArthur Hall is a Grade B listed building on the Methodist College Belfast site. Completed in 1891, the Hall was designed by Sir Thomas Newenham Deane and his son, Thomas Manly Deane, as a dormitory building for boarding students. In 2010, the boarding departments in McArthur Hall and the Main Building closed, ending a 142-year history of boarding at the College.
In 2017, Woodvale Construction was enlisted to carry out extensive repair work to refurbish the building and preserve longevity. The building now houses classrooms, a central courtyard and an impressive library. As well as retaining past heritage, renovation of this iconic building will enhance the learning experiences of all Methodist College pupils going forward.
This refurbishment project won the Bronze Considerate Constructors Scheme 2018 National Site Award and has been shortlisted for the RICS Northern Ireland Awards 2019 in the Building Conservation category.
Versatile Heating, Cooling & Ventilation were proud to be part of this project, supplying several forms of heating that were sympathetic to the conservation goals of the building, including:
