Team behind new Armagh college wins global award

By Staff Reporter

A new £35m Southern Regional College campus in Armagh has won a major engineering award.

The campus was named winner of the New Engineering Contract (NEC) 'client of the year' award at a ceremony in London last week.

Last year the award went to Hong Kong's Development Bureau for major public works.

The Lonsdale Road campus is part of a £95m investment by the Department for the Economy and Southern Regional College (SRC) and will open in 2020.

It was designed by WYG Group.

SRC chief executive Brian Doran said: "This award recognises the vision, talent and dedication of a fantastic team.

"With the support and commitment of the Department for the Economy and all our partners, we're really proud to be bringing this pioneering campus to Armagh."
