Felix O’Hare on track at new £35m SRC Armagh campus

Felix O’Hare and Co Limited is on track to complete Southern Regional College’s new £35million landmark campus in Armagh after reaching another important construction milestone.

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.

Around 200 jobs are being created within the construction phase of the project which also includes 25 apprenticeship opportunities. Designed by WYG Group with Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects, a key feature of the new Armagh build is the provision of innovation hubs through which students will directly engage with business and industry in real life projects.

The work at Armagh is part of SRC’s £95 million investment plans to open three new, state-of-the- art educational facilities and, in addition to a £15million project at the Banbridge campus, planning approval has now been granted for a new £45million, state-of-the art Further and Higher Education campus in Craigavon.
