Southern Regional College, based in Newry, is investing £95m in an expansion across County Armagh and County Down, with three new campuses planned for Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon.
The construction of the new £35m campus at Lonsdale Road in Armagh has already begun, with Felix O’Hare & Company as principal contractor, and is due for completion in 2020. It has been designed by WYG.
O’Hare & McGovern has now been appointed to build a new 5,000 m2 campus on the college's existing Castlewellan Road site in Banbridge, which is also on track to open in 2020.
In Craigavon, the college has submitted a planning application to build a new £45m facility.
