Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus

From June 2014, SIB have worked with the CC&G Council on the development of an Enterprise Zone, adjacent to the UU Coleraine Campus

Project Description

A pilot Enterprise Zone, adjacent to the Ulster University Coleraine Campus, was announced in March 2014.

In June 2014 it was decided that the best way to realise this investment opportunity was for Coleraine Borough Council to acquire the 20 acre site, carry out necessary enabling works and sub-lease a five acre plot to a suitable Data Centre developer (anchor tenant), followed by development and sub-leasing of the other 15 acres.

Coleraine Borough Council (now Causeway Coast and Glens) asked SIB to provide with assistance in the delivery of Northern Ireland’s first Enterprise Zone

Project Status

  • Following business case approval, by the Council, the site was purchased and enabling works carried out5NINES leased a section of the site and built their Data Centre which is now up and running http://www.99999ni.com/

SIB Involvement

SIB supported the Council in developing its Outline Business Case (OBC) – which tested the economic viability of the work needed to deliver such an Enterprise Zone and the benefits it could bring to the local and NI Economy.

SIB supported the council by project managing the delivery of the Enterprise Zone.
