WYG NI were responsible for the Design & Project Management of Belfast Met’s Springvale Campus.
WYG plc said it had reached an agreement to buy back all three of its subsidiaries in Belfast following the appointment last month of a provisional liquidator to its business in the Republic.
The Leeds-headquartered company said that all three of its subsidiaries in Northern Ireland, all based at offices just of Montgomery Road in Castlereagh, had continued to trade profitably.
Over the past four months or so the WYG business in Northern Ireland has secured new contracts worth in the region of £6m across its three divisions, including engineering services for the new Omagh Local Hospital.
Head of WYG in Northern Ireland, Michael Scott, said: “The Northern Ireland business is self sustaining and has a strong and steady pipeline of work to see us well into the future. This includes several prestigious public sector developments, most notably, the new Omagh Enhanced Local Hospital. The 27,882m² new facility is on the site of the Tyrone & Fermanagh Hospital and is currently lodged for Planning Approval. WYG Engineering (NI) Ltd is providing the M&E Engineering services for this project.”
Recently WYG’s NI business also won a significant framework contract to provide quantity surveying; civil and structural engineering and mechanical and electrical engineering work to the Belfast Health & Social Services Trust which runs until 2016 and has also been appointed as Project Manager for the significant re-development of Foyle & Londonderry College.
