Michael Nugent Completes Three Education Projects

After a busy summer of construction and refurbishment projects, Michael Nugent has completed works at the University of Ulster, Belfast Royal Academy and a Newry primary school.


This week our engineers have caught a bit of the ‘back to school’ spirit as they complete works on several education projects ahead of the new academic term in September.

Among them is Belfast Royal Academy, where the first phase of mechanical works was handed over last week. The project involved the full refurbishment of the grammar school’s Home Economics block, where Michael Nugent fitted all mechanical supplies and a new plant room.

Our team is currently finishing work on the second phase of the project, which involves the installation of a new plant room in the school’s music department and is due to be completed next week.

The project comes as part of a £134m investment from the government to enhance facilities in 51 schools across Northern Ireland. With a stimulating and challenging learning environment, the refurbishment works will enrich Belfast Royal Academy’s facilities and thus the learning experience they can provide for their valued pupils.

We’re also in the process of finishing mechanical works at St. Joseph’s Convent Primary School, Newry. The school’s new nursery building was completed at the end of July and mechanical works in the main school will be handed over next week.

As a caring community that provides a stimulating environment for children, the new facility will enhance St. Joseph’s Convent ability to create an exciting learning experience for pupils.

Developments at the Belfast Royal Academy and St. Joseph’s Convent Primary School follow the completion of the University of Ulster’s new Faculty of Arts building in Coleraine.

Michael Nugent supplied both mechanical and electrical works to the stylish new building, including heating, plumbing, ventilation and sanitation; as well as general power supplies and structural cabling.

Inside, the facility boasts a 250-seat lecture theatre; TV studio; sound studio; imaging equipment rooms and classrooms for 20, 40 and 60 people. It also makes the most of creative space where students can relax and socialise.

With such appealing facilities, the building will enhance students’ learning experience and prepare them for life in a professional working environment.

Michael Nugent has completed mechanical and electrical works on plenty of projects like these. Take a look at our education portfolio for more.
