BBC seeks contractor for £25m Belfast revamp
March 21, 2019 – The BBC is planning to spend £25m on its Belfast studios and is advertising for a contractor.
Belfast’s Broadcasting House is to be redeveloped “to an accessible and flexible space that enables greater content production and interaction with the audience”, the contract notice says.
A new building will be constructed and linked to the existing blocks in the city’s Linen Quarter. A plaza space new to the new building will open out as a new entrance, supporting Belfast City Council’s vision of Broadcasting House acting as a gateway to City Hall.
The contract is initially just for pre-construction services, running from June to November 2019. The construction contract will run from December 2019 to January 2023.
