Key milestone reached as stunning new campus reaches its highest point with ‘digital twin’ created as part of major innovation
Southern Regional College’s new £35 million landmark campus in Armagh is well on track for a grand opening launch in 2020 after reaching another important construction milestone.
Key representatives, including Southern Regional College’s Chief Executive Brian Doran, Neil Madeley from Further Education Division within the Department for the Economy who are providing the funding for the project and Mark Campbell from construction lead Felix O’Hare and Co. Limited, gathered this week at the site to witness the new building reach its highest point.
Constructed on the existing Lonsdale Road site, the 14,000 square-metre campus stands 18.4 metres tall and will house an unrivalled blend of specialist accommodation designed to facilitate world class professional and technical education and training. It will also include learning facilities required for students studying at degree and postgraduate levels.
Around 200 jobs are being created within the construction phase of the project which also includes 25 apprenticeship opportunities.
