Titanic Quarter Ltd
RPS was commissioned as Civil & Structural Engineering Consultants for the redevelopment of the 185 acre Titanic Quarter Site.
Developments on the site include mixed use residential accommodation, office and leisure facilities, educational accommodation and other major public buildings including the award winning Public Records Office and the iconic Titanic Building. RPS is involved in the detailed design of the site wide civil engineering infrastructure works. These works are essential components in the development of the site and they have been designed to accommodate the future development that is anticipated to take place on the site. These works include new roads, signalised junctions, upgrading of the existing carriageways adjacent to the site and public realm areas along with the site wide drainage infrastructure.
We have also been responsible for the detailed design of many of the new building structures on the Titanic Quarter Site. The site is located in an area previously occupied by the Harland and Wolff shipyard and as part of our involvement we were also responsible for developing solutions for the remediation of this site given the contamination that pre-existed on the site from its former use.
RPS is also responsible for developing flood mitigation strategies for the site and for a number of the buildings on the site where basements have been incorporated into the design of a number of these buildings. On 31 March 2012, Belfast’s Titanic Signature Building opened its doors to the public. The striking six-storey aluminium and glass clad building forms the centrepiece of the Titanic Quarter development, which, at £97m, represents a major investment in tourism in Northern Ireland and which provides Belfast with an iconic museum and exhibition space centred on the theme of the Titanic.
