Graham wins contract to build Dunclug College campus in Northern Ireland
May 07, 2021 – Construction firm Graham Group has received a contract from the Education Authority to construct a new school campus for Dunclug College in Ballymena, Northern Ireland.
The new facility, situated adjacent to the Cushendall Road, will be constructed on the existing all-weather pitch to the rear of the existing facility.
The 11,358m2 building will be a mix of both single and two storeys and is the first phase of the phased construction programme, which that was commenced in March this year.
It is planned to be completed in the summer of 2024.
Upon the completion, the school will be moved from the existing building to the new facility and then the old school building will be demolished.
With the finalisation of external site works, Graham plans to develop playgrounds and sporting facility separately.
Graham Group project director Garry Farmer said: “Many of them live in the surrounding areas and therefore understand the need for this new facility at Dunclug College.
“The new school will provide a state-of-the-art teaching platform that will transform the learning experience of all of the college’s students and GRAHAM is delighted to have been selected by the Education Authority to bring this scheme to life.
“Our phased programme of works was developed specifically to meet the immediate and future requirements of Dunclug College and we will work collaboratively with the school throughout our programme to ensure all of its needs are met.”
Last month, the construction company started building Birmingham’s first smart-enabled building at Innovation Birmingham Campus in the UK.
