'THE OLD POST OFFICE' (Ballypatrick)
Started late February 2016, The renovation of Ballypatrick's Old Post Office.
Even though the footprint of this structure is fairly small it posed quite a challenge architecturally and threw up some tricky detailing in the build design its self. The finished product boasts a super insulated structure with a mixed radiator and underfloor heating system that can be operated from a mobile phone, an always on heat recovery ventilation system, Zinc roof detailing to link the different structures and a mixture of sympathetic timber triple glazed windows to the front and Aluclad windows to the rear.
Mary and Liam O'Reilly's knowledge of the modern day building innovations is vast and had no problem in bringing there own ideas to the table which made this project all the more enjoyable.
Ed Walsh was the architect overseeing job, while Ed was very detailed with his design, he was quite amenable to taking on board alternative suggestions and was extremely easy to work with.
