Commencement of engineering and construction of Translink’s Belfast Transport Hub will represent a significant investment in the future of public Transport and its Infrastructure in Northern Ireland.
Alongside the state-of-the-art design and build of the iconic new structure, the project has been looking closely at the meaningful part it can play in connecting the project to the needs of local communities.
The Belfast Transport Hub recognises the clear benefits of operating in a sustainable and environmentally conscious manner, embedding social value into the ethos and principals of the project.
The transport led regeneration project has will looking at delivering meaningful social value that maps out engagement activity which can measure its impact throughout the duration of the project build. The Social Value initiative will be aligned to the strategic targets of the Programme for Government, Belfast Agenda and Translink’s corporate goals.
Social Value through the BTH will aim to have a strong focus in areas such as employment, training, education, diversity, inclusion, health, wellbeing and the environment.
Prior to the commencement of the site works, the Belfast Transport Hub have delivered social value activity locally by volunteering in projects that have enhanced the local environment, supported local schools and social enterprises, attended and hosted local events and have made donations to apprentices and charities.
