CMYA Ireland 2019 winner, Alan Barnes, on his Scots Church project



Alan Barnes, Senior Project Manager of Collen Construction, gives a stunning presentation of his refurbishment and extension of the Scots Church project off Abbey Street in Dublin. The project married historic building renovation on the old Presbyterian Church, with the addition of a cutting-edge futuristic office building. The project posed exceptional technical and logistical challenges due to its mix of old and new and its constricted inner-city location adjacent to railway tracks.

Decision Making and Leadership

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
