The new engineering building at NUI Galway.
Taylor Architects were the first private architectural practice in County Mayo and was established by the late Sean Taylor on Main Street Castlebar in 1966.
The practice has been involved in some of the largest building projects in the West of Ireland. In Castlebar our office have been design team leaders on Mayo General Hospital, GMIT, Volex, Baxter Healtcare, and others. More recent projects in the town include Davitt College extension and Sports Hall, Mayo Education centre, Business Innovation unit GMIT, Mayo county Library HQ, commercial developments at Hopkins Road (Argos), Lannagh Road (NEXT), Spencer street (Old Cinema site, McDermotts), Rush St (old Kingsbridge site) and Shamble street.
Taylor Architects were the first Carbon Neutral Architectural practice in the Republic of Ireland.
We also led the profession in achieving ISO accreditation in 1996 and are a RIAI accredited conservation practice.
The practice currently employs 25 people and continues to develop with projects such as a €45 million euro expansion at St Patricks teacher training college, Drumcondra,, a new research building at Institute of Technology Tallaght and clients such as Hollister and Allergan Pharmaceuticals. We have recently been appointed as consultants on two large school projects for County Cork VEC in conjunction with Wilson Architecture and will commence on site with a number of multi million euro school projects in Mayo and Galway in 2012.
As is the history of the practice we carry out work at all levels and scale, and we have also just completed projects such as a two classroom extension to Scoil Raifteri, Castlebar, a three classroom extension to St Geralds College Castlebar and a single classroom extension to Parke National School as well as private and one off private projects.
