We deliver the Ulster University expansion project

The new and avant-garde campus in Belfast has some facilities that combine the traditional local architecture, sustainability and the integration into the urban landscape.

The new building of the Ulster University Belfast campus, built by Sacyr, has a 75,000 m2 surface and includes five atriums. 22,000 m2 of glass were used in its construction to make it a luminous and open building.



One of the most singular spaces in campus is the rooftop garden, which even has trees which were included as part of Belfast City's urban reforestation plan and its commitment to sustainability.

The facilities include more than 300 learning spaces, 2 lecture theatres with 350 and 250 seats respectively, 18 elevators, a two-story library and private study sections which can accommodate up to 500 students, a biometric laboratory, nine catering outlets including a rooftop café.




Commitment to sustainability

This state-of-the-art building is a modern construction that combines Victorian inspiration from local architecture and modern, using long-lasting materials, resulting in a sustainable building which can accommodate more than 15,000 university students and staff.


Community involvement

As part of our commitment to the local community, we developed multiple initiatives focused on supporting the long-term unemployed, and student work placements in fields related to the construction process.

During the building project, the equivalent of over 100 years worth of training, apprenticeships, and placement opportunities ensured this project brought many opportunities to the local community.

When delivering the project, Paul Bartholomew, Vice-Chancellor Professor said: “I want to pay tribute to the dedication and effort of the architects, contractors, countless skilled craftspeople and tradespeople, and the very many colleagues who have worked tirelessly over the years to bring this transformational campus to fruition”.
