Building Social Value

Commencement of engineering and construction of Translink’s Belfast Grand Central Station 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.

Belfast Grand Central Station 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 will deliver 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 Belfast Grand Central Station build, 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 Grand Central Station project has 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.
