QUB Riddel Hall Expansion
The proposal is for the expansion of Queens Management School (QMS) through the creation of a new purpose-built teaching facility at Riddel Hall on the Stranmillis Road.
Queen's University Belfast
Stranmillis Road, Belfast
The proposed building will extend and enhance the Riddel Hall campus. The project will provide teaching space and ancillary research, support, and social accommodation. It will also involve renovation work to the listed Riddel Hall building due to the relocation of current facilities to the new proposed space.
The expansion of the school will ensure that it is fit to serve the changing educational needs of a rapidly growing postgraduate community, who will prove invaluable to the progress of the Northern Ireland economy.
Gravis Planning worked alongside Todd Architects, to prepare a planning application in advance of submission to Belfast City Council. This included providing planning advice and a public community consultation event in Riddel Hall to showcase the proposal. The planning application was submitted in October 2019 and subsequently permission was granted in June 2020.
