Institute of Research Excellence for Advanced Clinical Healthcare (iREACH Health): project will provide approximately 8,300 sqm of unified clinical trial and research space, while creating a joined-up pathway for CRO (Contract Research Organisations), NIHS (Northern Ireland Health Service) and CRN (Clinical Research Network) and real-world studies. The site, adjacent to Belfast City Hospital (BCH), will be split across two blocks on either side of the Lisburn Road with a consistent architectural expression to each building. iREACH Health Site B will involve the demolition of the existing Radius Housing tower. iREACH Health Site A (BCH side) will be bridge linked to BCH.
The building work is expected to start on site in Autumn 2024 and the facility will be operational by Autumn/Winter 2026.
