"Titanic Belfast" (originally the Titanic Signature Project)
Work started, in May 2009, on what, at the time, was known as “The Titanic Signature Project”. The building opened to the public on 31 March 2012. This is a series of photographs showing the construction work underway and after the public opening. It is owned by an independent charitable trust known as Titanic Foundation Limited LinkExternal link.
The site occupies some 75 acres of waterfront, former industrial land on the eastern side of the River Lagan in the Titanic Quarter and close to the centre of Belfast. The architects were Todd Architects who designed J3372 : Department of Architecture, Queen's University, Belfast (2) and J3474 : The "Boat" site, Belfast (42).

A visit to Harland and Wolff, Belfast
A series of pictures taken during a private group tour of Harland and Wolff in Belfast, including a trip up the huge crane 'Samson'. My grateful thanks to H&W for allowing access and a fascinating visit. Please note that there is no public access to the site - this was a pre-arranged group visit.
