Tropical Ravine – Restoration

Posted April 30, 2018.

JD McGeown Ltd, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Contractors are extremely pleased to have been part of the team that recently delivered on one of N. Irelands newest and most prestigious projects the Tropical Ravine.
This is a unique, listed building nestled in the heart of Botanic Gardens and is home to many tropical and native plants.

A strong team spirit is central to the success of every project and we are very proud to have been part of the team that accompanied the main building contractor Mc Aleer and Teague on the delivery of this prominent scheme.
Now sympathetically restored to its former glory with a modern 21st-century twist it will become Belfast’s most popular tourist attractions. The new look ravine takes a step back to how the Victorians designed the original building in 1887 with old features reinstated and unique details preserved.
The £3.8 million restoration project boasts water features and lighting effect arrangements as well as the creation of a new main entrance enhancing the ravine’s visibility, functionality and presence within the gardens.

The project was not without its challenges which demanded working in close coordination and collaboration with the entire design team and the client to achieve this prestigious finish.
