The existing College of Further and Higher Education is situated in Armagh City on the edge of a Conservation Area, adjacent to the listed Armagh Courthouse and in close proximity to ‘The Mall’.
The new building designed to accommodate 1500 students will replace the existing college campus on what is a challenging site with steep topography and a significant collection of listed buildings in close proximity.
Conceptual design identified the need to respond to the listed courthouse on College Hill and develop a public realm boulevard from the Mall through to the public facing areas of the college. A south facing landscaped amphitheatre on approach to the building provides a performance space and public meeting area.
The project is a ‘Flagship’ UK BIM Level 2 Project and the Client and Integrated Consultant Team have utilised Revit software from inception to completion.
