IN2 have been responsible for the building services and environmental design for this significant commercial office development.
Extensive airflow modelling and Thermal analysis was undertaken to demonstrate and validate the ventilation strategy, proving the Building’s low energy ethos. The design takes full cognisance of the attainment of LEED / BREEAM / BER ratings as requested by the client.

The Clarence Chambers development sees the extension and refurbishment of the original building at the corner of Donegall Square East in Belfast. It will involve the demolition of the rear return and infill buildings along with the provision of a new rear extension. This will provide a link to office accommodation for commercial use to the basement, ground floor and 4th floor with associated roof terrace. Further office accommodation will be created on 1st-6th floors with roof top plant, public realm works. The B1 listed buildings at 18 and 19 Donegall Square East are 3.5 storeys over basement constructed c1839 and have had a number of uses ranging from residential to commercial including offices and restaurant / bars / hotel. The development will bring some much needed life back into the city centre, providing premium office and retail space in this grand and historic building. This will be a fantastic project that is sure to make an impact to the local area and one that we are immensely proud to be part of.
