SIAC Scoop Derry Regeneration Contract

SIAC (NI) has been awarded the £6 million contract to re-develop the parade ground at the former Ebrington Barracks in Derry into a new public square. The regeneration of the parade ground is considered by the Derry regeneration organisation, Ilex, to be fundamental as it will provide a link from the Waterside to the PeaceBridge and on to the city centre’s commercial core. It will also create a ‘destination space’ in Ebrington for a range of culture and leisure activities. Holding up to 15,000 people, it will help to bring communities together by providing space for interaction and engagement. Kieran Doyle, Regional Director SIAC (NI) said: "SIAC is delighted to have been awarded this prestigious project which will become a legacy for the City and provide a focal point for the City of Culture celebrations. It will also offer local employment opportunities and is a welcome boost to our ongoing operations and expansion in Northern Ireland. We bring a wealth of experience in successful delivery of high profile schemes including regeneration of Armagh, Portadown and Lurgan and look forward to working closely with Ilex and McAdam Design to deliver this project."
