Architect sought for £25m Queen's Belfast student centre

Belfast
  • Comment

Queen’s University Belfast is on the hunt for an architect for a new £25 million Integrated Student Centre

The winning architect-led design team will draw up plans for a new 11,000m2 hub combing all of the university’s support, advice, developmental and commercial services for students.

Located opposite the university’s iconic ‘Lanyon Building’, the current Students’ Union was constructed in 1967 on the site of a former residential block and now has more than 24,000 members.

Originally designed for just 6,000 students, the building – which features a 2,000 capacity concert hall, canteen and three bars – received an £8.8 million overhaul by local firm Todd Architects in 2006.

 According to the brief: ‘The project will redevelop the existing Students’ Union site to provide a new purpose built Integrated Student Centre which addresses the identified accommodation needs, providing a stimulating and engaging environment for the undergraduate and postgraduate student population.’

A temporary decant space for Students’ Union activities within a neighbouring Grade B2-listed building will also be required before demolition commences.

Up to six teams will be shortlisted for the contract which is estimated to be worth up to £1.4 million.

Documents must be requested by 5 February and the deadline for submitting tenders is 4pm on 12 February.
