Bam Construct lands £50m ‘efficient’ office redevelopment job

Bam Construct has bagged a contract to redevelop a 108,000-square-foot office block in London.

The contractor will refurbish the site at 11 Belgrave Road in Victoria, which it said was the first construction project in the UK to receive a 5.5-star NABERS rating for building efficiency. The job, for US-based real estate developer Quadrum, is believed to be worth about £50m.

More than 14,000 square feet of communal space will be developed on site, as well as 13,000 square feet of green space, a café and a gym.

The site is set to be net zero, both in construction and operation. Office development projects that receive five- or 5.5-star NABERS ratings are judged to have “excellent” energy efficiency. Six stars is the maximum rating that a project can get.

The work is set to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Bam Construct London regional director Rod Stiles said: “The quality of our collaboration [with Quadrum] not only resolves problems; it enhances the way we adopt digital platforms, achieve sustainability goals and deliver social value to the community around us.

“There is [a] great positive vibe emerging from the client team and we bring a wealth of experience to bear.”

Eric Parry Architects designed the scheme in conjunction with landscape architects Gillespies.
