The Northern Regional College (NRC) has embarked on developing a new state of the art campus.
Funded by the Department for the Economy, the investment forms part of a wider £85million capital investment programme for NRC on its current sites in Union Street, Coleraine and Farm Lodge, Ballymena. These projects will deliver a significant transformation to accommodation, curriculum provision and will significantly rationalise delivery across the catchment area for Northern Regional College.
Speaking following the appointment of Heron Bros. Ltd. as the lead contractor to build the new NRC Coleraine campus, the Economy Minister, Diane Dodds, said the construction of a new £40million campus for the Northern Regional College (NRC) was a significant boost to the economy at a very challenging time.
It is anticipated that over 100 construction jobs will be created with approximately 300 sustained during the building phase of the Coleraine project. Along with these full-time jobs, over 1,000 weeks of training will be provided for new apprentices across a range of construction related trades.
Professor Terri Scott, Principal and Chief Executive of Northern Regional College, said: “Our new Coleraine campus will result in a world-class learning environment, enabling the delivery of training, skills and transformational education not only for our students, but for the wider local community.
“We are working closely with the local business and industry sectors to determine the skills needs which will drive economic growth, sustain and produce new jobs and opportunities for the people of the area. In the coming years there will be many exciting opportunities.”
Belfast based commercial law firm, Cleaver Fulton Rankin act as legal advisors to the Northern Regional College.
Director, Patrick Fleming, commented, “We are delighted to have been a lead adviser to the Northern Regional College in the provision of procurement and construction advice for the planned state of the art education campus in Coleraine. The FE sector has undergone a remarkable transformation and a building contract such as this will strengthen the long-term future of education and is a vital pillar in our economic recovery.”
