Hamilton Architects are celebrating after winning the design contracts for £37.5m worth of new school building throughout Northern Ireland.

The latest wins by the London, Belfast and Derry-based practice brings the construction value of business they have secured in the education sector in the past 12 months to £74.5m.

“We are delighted because the education sector is an important part of our portfolio, but we also deliver landmark projects in the leisure, health, culture and residential sectors,” said Partner Mark Haslett.

Hamilton’s sister company, Kriterion Conservation Architects, have just been awarded Tourism Project of the Year from the Irish Construction Industry Awards 2017 for their work on Enniskillen Castle Museum.

New education contracts include: Ulidia Integrated College, Carrickfergus; North Coast Integrated College, Coleraine; Gaelscoil Aodha Rhua, Dungannon; Roe Valley Integrated Primary School, Limavady; Rowandale Integrated Primary School, Moira; and St Peter’s Primary School, Dungannon.

Hamiltons are already working on a £7m redevelopment for Methodist College, a new campus in Enniskillen for South West College, an Irish language primary school in Omagh and a 600 pupil secondary school in Crossmaglen.

Projects delivered by the company include Kingspan Stadium, Dundalk Race Course, National Football Stadium NI, Riddel Hall, Crumlin Road Gaol, Ulster Museum, Mersey Ferry Terminal and greyhound stadiums in Cork and Dundalk.
