Titanic Quarter Ltd.
RPS was commissioned as civil & structural engineering consultant 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. We were responsible for the detailed design of many of the new building structures on the site, which is located in an area previously occupied by the Harland and Wolff shipyard.
RPS was civil, structural and fire engineer for the award winning Titanic Belfast, a striking six-storey aluminium and glass clad building which forms the iconic centrepiece of the Titanic Quarter development.
We were also involved in the detailed design of the site wide civil engineering infrastructure works. 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 were also tasked with developing solutions for the remediation of this site given the contamination that pre-existed on the site from its former use. RPS also developed flood mitigation strategies for the site and for a number of the buildings, where basements have been incorporated into the design.
