BAM will upgrade former government offices in London.
A sustainable construction company has emerged with the contract for the London offices which used to belong to a department of the British Government.
BAM have won a contract which will see them refurbish the former offices of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for £23 million.
The official office address is 1 Page Street in Westminster and BAM will be working under the contractor who tendered the bid out, Derwent London.
Offering 11,000 square metres of office space in the heart of London, the former Westminster Hospital site was converted into a commercial property which has since been let to Burberry after the government department moved out of the site.
Under the terms of the deal BAM will be involved with external and internal construction. Replacing the steel and glass façade outside will be bricks and punched windows, whilst indoors new lifts will be added as well as fitting electrical and mechanical services.
BAM Construction company director Mike Donegan said: “The project will require a comprehensive reworking of the existing building, particularly given its historic uses. We look forward to creating the fantastic office space that this prime location deserves, and continuing our relationship with Derwent.
“The London commercial sector is beginning to improve after a difficult few years and BAM is proving that it is well placed to play a big role in its future,” he addded.
BAM has previously worked with Derwent London before when it renovated the Angel Building close to King’s Cross Station.
