This is how the new £30m Southern Regional College building in Armagh will look when it’s completed.
The new campus in the city, due for completion in early 2020, is to be constructed on the existing Lonsdale Road site.
The building features approximately 12,000m2 of specialist accommodation across a number of curriculum areas facilitating the current curricula offered in Armagh with the option for further extension of provision.
During the construction work in Armagh, classes will be relocated to the Lisanally site.
The former St Brigid’s High School in Armagh could also be used to accommodate teaching during the lengthy process.
The new facilities will be state-of-the-art and, according to the Southern Regional College, geared towards the provision of “world class professional and teachnical educational training”.
“A key feature of all the new campuses is the provision of innovation hubs through which students will engage with business and industry in ‘real world’ industrial projects and challenges,” explained a college spokesperson.
“The new campus (in Armagh) will also include learning facilities required for learning at degree and post-graduate levels. This includes the provision of state-of-the-art learning esource centres, integrated student social areas and learning support services.”
