Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures has successfully completed the state-of-the-art Ulster University Belfast campus project. The project consisted on the development of two new blocks located in York Street, opposite the current campus building.
With more than 75,000 sq. m.building area, one is 4 storeys and the other is 11 storeys high the facilities include more than 300 learning spaces, 2 lecture theatres with 350 and 250 seats respectively, 18 elevators, a two-story library and private study sections which can accommodate up to 500 students, a biometric laboratory, nine catering outlets including a rooftop café.
We used BIM technology and digital processes in the design to guarantee an effective and collaborative approach: all the stages in the development of the design, construction and delivery were optimized and monitored on a large scale by all the members of this project.
Commitment to sustainability
This state-of-the-art building is a modern construction that combines Victorian inspiration from local architecture and modern, using long-lasting materials, resulting in a sustainable building which can accommodate more than 15,000 university students and staff.
One of the most singular spaces in campus is the rooftop garden, which even has trees which were included as part of Belfast City's urban reforestation plan and its commitment to sustainability.
