School of Law Tower

Last Update: 10 Jul 2016 | New Project Added

A nine storey building designed by Todd Architects for Queen’s University. The building uses the concrete frame of the 1967 Library Tower building. The 12-storey Library Tower was designed by John McGeagh and built 1962 – 1967.

Felix O’Hare commenced works on the new School of Law building in January 2014. The works involved removing the upper three floors of the existing building, removing the building facade and all internal structures. The new building was then built around the remaining concrete frame and a new facade installed. The works also comprised a new three storey extension connecting the tower to the Peter Froggatt Centre. The School of Law occupies the upper floors of the building whilst the ground floor comprises a social hub / group study space and cafe. The building is designed to achieve a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) ‘Excellent’ rating.
