BAM Construction to deliver fifth unit at Dunsbury Business Park in UK

WCN Editorial Team 3 Dec 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

BAM Construction, a subsidiary of Royal BAM Group, has been appointed by the Portsmouth City Council for the next stage of Dunsbury Business Park in Portsmouth, UK.

The scope of the work will include the construction of the fifth unit at the 45-acre business park, which was previously farmland.

The unit will be a 10,000m2 industrial warehouse and a 750m2 office that will be handed over to Bio Pure Technologies, which is a part of industrial /pharmaceutical pipework specialist Watson-Marlow.

The £12.5m building is scheduled to commence production in 2022 and is estimated to create approximately 120 new manufacturing and engineering jobs.

BAM said that its subsidiary, BAM Design, is also working as the masterplan architect for the business park located in Havant, Portsmouth.

The work on the unit five building follows the work on the other three units which are currently occupied by 3M Fat Face, VW, and DPD UK.

The company claimed that the new building is the largest of the plots to be developed so far.

It has already commenced site preparation work while the final contract details were agreed and will now start works in earnest.

The business park is owned by the Portsmouth City Council and is estimated to generate millions of pounds of rental income for the authority.

BAM South East team commercial manager John Rixon said: “This is an interesting appointment for us because Portsmouth has used Procure Partnerships, and it is a direct appointment for us.

“Our enabling works across the whole of the business park put us in an excellent position to compete for each unit, but we have to prove the quality and value of what we do each time.

“Its pleasing to build on a strong relationship with Portsmouth City Council and on the strong track record we have down here on the south coast.”
