Belfast fit-out firm Portview is to work on a London university's new College of Fashion as part of a £24m contract.

Portview has been appointed by the London Legacy Development Corporation to work on the University of the Arts London's (UAL) new fashion campus at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

The corporation was set up to create a long-term legacy from the 2012 London Olympics.

The College of Fashion will form part of a new educational and cultural destination for London.

The project will be known as East Bank and will bring together all six London College of Fashion's sites in a campus for over 6,500 students and staff, with facilities including public open spaces, galleries, library and archives.

Portview has worked with major names in the world of fashion such as Tiffany & Co, Oscar de la Renta, Issey Miyake, Chanel, Burberry, and Christian Louboutin.

It's Portview's second regeneration project in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park after it completed the hospitality areas in the West Stand at the London Stadium in 2016.

John McMahon, the company's contracts director, said: "This is a hugely exciting project for us and we're delighted to have been entrusted by the London Legacy team to deliver their vision of a world-class learning facility that will go on to nurture the very best talent in arts and culture.

"We recognise that this project is more than just bricks and mortar. It's about building a cultural destination where people can learn, work, socialise and thrive."
