Patton Construction awarded £44M Belfast Metropolitan college project

Patton Construction has been awarded one of the most significant building projects in Northern Ireland – a £44m contract to build the new Belfast Metropolitan College within the city’s Titanic Quarter.

The Ballymena company will be responsible for the design and build of the new college to a complete turnkey specification.  Patton Construction staff went on site last week with the scheme scheduled to finish in August 2011 and supporting around 400 construction jobs.

Patton Construction director Trevor Campbell said: “This has been a long process, but we are delighted to have been given the go ahead to build such a landmark education project in the heart of the emerging Titanic Quarter. 

“It will be a challenging programme but we have assembled an experienced and expert team to take it forward and complete the scheme on time.”

Development work got underway following the signing of a contract with project coordinator Ivywood Colleges to design, build and run the campus, with Ulster Bank as financial backer. The bank is also providing finance for the wider development of Titanic Quarter.

Architect for what will be Northern Ireland’s largest higher education facility are Belfast-based award-winning TODD Architects.
