Works Commence at the University of Ulster

We’ve started mechanical and electrical installation works on the new Faculty of Arts building at University of Ulster, Coleraine.

UU Faculty of Arts

Michael Nugent has arrived on site at the University of Ulster’s new Faculty of Arts building, as our mechanical and electrical services get underway.

The institute’s new building on the Coleraine campus is set to be a modern and dynamic development for the university.

With a 250-seat lecture theatre and classrooms for 20, 40 and 60 people, the new build will be of a significant capacity. It will boast a state-of-the-art TV studio, sound studio, imaging equipment rooms and multimedia language labs – offering the high tech environment needed for an effective learning experience.

The three-storey building will be attached to main university building with a glazed walkway and will offer creative space for students to relax and socialise.

Overall, it will provide the vibrant facilities and innovative setting essential for the preparation of modern professional life.

Michael Nugent is working in close collaboration with Heron Bros on the project. The main contractors have implemented various initiatives to minimise the environmental impact of the works, including the installation of a rain harvesting system that recycles 100% of the water used on site.

They have also registered the project with the Considerate Constructors Scheme to minimise the impact to the local community and university campus while works are in progress.

Due to be complete by July 2015, the building should be ready for the 2015-2016 academic year. We’re delighted to be working on the project and will keep you updated as works progress.
