The new College campus in Armagh, Northern Ireland was part of an investment by Southern Regional College and the Department for Economy. This investment was allocated to create 3 new state-of-the-art educational campuses across Armagh City, Banbridge, and Craigavon area. As the first of the 3 campuses to be built, this new, purpose-built facility in Armagh is comprised of 14,000m2 specialist accommodation across several curriculum areas. The new campus is designed to facilitate an uplift to cater for professional & technical training for a new generation.
Working with the delivery team, IN2 was responsible for the MEP services design and delivering BREEAM 'Excellent' elements of the project. The project scope involved the major demolition of pre-existing college buildings along with associated services, and the subsequent new build construction on the existing Armagh campus. The project was carried out to BIM Level 2 and in accordance with the NEC3 Form of Contract.
BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating puts Armagh SRC among the most sustainable FE colleges in the UK and Ireland.
Brian Doran, Southern Regional College Chief Executive, said: “Our focus from the outset has been on developing a series of campus developments in Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon which would be among the most advanced in the world and provide a sustainability benchmark which others would follow. Working with our partners, we put sustainability at the heart of the new Armagh campus and I’m delighted that this superb, state-of-the-art facility will not only provide world-class education and training but will be among the newest, most environmentally-conscious buildings to be completed in Northern Ireland.”
