Development of Southern Regional College’s new £35 million state-of-the-art campus in Armagh reaches new milestone
Construction work on Southern Regional College’s new £35 million educational campus in Armagh began this week after demolition crews cleared the way for full build work to start.
The new campus, which is part of a £95 million investment by SRC and the Department for the Economy to create three new state-of-the-art educational campuses across the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon area, is now firmly on track to open in just over two years’ time.
The first of the three campuses to be built, this new, purpose-built facility in Armagh will comprise 14,000 sq. metres of specialist accommodation across several curriculum areas. The campus has been carefully designed to facilitate a major uplift in the provision of professional and technical education and training for a new generation.
Located on the existing Lonsdale Road site, the new campus will also specialise in the provision of innovation hubs through which students will engage with business and industry in real world industrial projects and challenges.
