Firm wins £5.4m Assembly roof job

A contractor has been appointed to carry out a £5.4 million repair of the Northern Ireland Assembly roof.

The body which runs the devolved parliament has already spent thousands on maintenance and work because of water penetration on the third and fourth floors.

Enniskillen building company Tracey Brothers has won the deal to carry out an overhaul.

Speaker William Hay said: " The building is an important part of our heritage and we are confident that this project will protect and enhance the listed status of the building for many years to come and will significantly improve our carbon footprint."

The contractor has many years' experience of working in high-profile public buildings.

Director John Tracey said: "We are delighted to have been awarded the contract for the repair of Parliament Buildings roof and look forward to working in partnership with Hamilton Architects and the Assembly Commission on this magnificent building."

Work is due to begin later this month and is expected to last a year.
