FENN'S QUAY - CORK CITY
The buildings at 2-5 Fenn’s Quay comprise the majority of an 18th century terrace with remarkably intact interiors.
Cork Corporation included the buildings in their Historic Area Action Plan which obtained European Union funding for their conservation. The Corporation played a significant role in the conservation process, in both policing the project and suggesting acceptable final users. Specifications and details were prepared based on in-depth research, recording, specialist testing and advice. Schedule of Authentic Joinery was prepared which identified original joinery and glazing to be retained and became the basis for all joinery work.
The project was awarded the RIAI Silver Medal for Conservation in 2005.
