The Medical Council of Ireland was set up to protect the interests of the public when dealing with registered medical practitioners. The reconstitution of the council enhanced this role and required premises capable of dealing with the increased interface with doctors and the public.
The project includes both offices, a registry section interfacing with practitioners, and a chamber for inquiry and council meetings in a building of 1,908m2. The building itself is made up of two sections, the old Georgian building to the front and the new build behind.
Conservation works included upgrade of floor joists, treatment of damp proofing and repair of windows as well as treatment of rising damp and dry rot throughout the listed building.
