The computer giant Seagate Technology Ltd developed and now operates a purpose-built 5000m2 clean room in the Campsie Industrial Estate near Londonderry in Northern Ireland.
The two universities within Northern Ireland run undergraduate courses which are accredited by the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Civil Engineers. On these courses, there is a strong link between research and undergraduate teaching through specialist modules and project work. However, the following paragraphs concentrate on the research currently in progress in each of the two universities.

This paper deals with an ‘umbrella ’structure, illustrated in Fig I , to provide support to a new roof deck over a series of existing two storey flat-roof buildings. This solution was adopted after investigation of various options, such as replacing the existing bituminous-felt membrane with a modern fabric or by placing a lightweight pitched roof fixed to the existing structure. Consideration was also given to a new-build solution, but costs were prohibitive. This project is being carried out under the GC Works I Form of Contract and costs are in the region of £6M.
