This has been designed to improve public access and support Belfast council’s vision of Broadcasting House acting as a gateway to City Hall.

Sheppard Robson is main architect and interiors architect on the scheme.

Work is due to be carried out by local contractor Graham. Construction is expected to be complete in 2023. Arup is carrying out multi-disciplinary services work on the scheme.

Broadcasting House, located on Ormeau Avenue, was drawn up in 1936 by Scottish architect James Millar and opened in 1941.
