BAM JV wins German business campus contract

WCN Editorial Team 13 Feb 2019 EUROPE BUILDINGS

BAM Deutschland, the German non-residential construction subsidiary of Dutch company Royal BAM Group, in joint venture with Max Bögl Stiftung, has won a contract for the second phase of the business campus of Wüstenrot & Württembergische (W&W) in Kornwestheim, in the German state of Baden-Württemberg.

W&W is a provider of financial services and insurance.

The joint venture, Arge ‘Neubau Campus W & W, 2. BA’, will deliver a high-quality campus complex with a total floor space of 86,000m² for W&W employees.

The second phase will include offices for 2,800 employees, a conference centre, staff restaurants, a prevention centre for clients and a company medical practice.

The second phase consists of 10 buildings in addition to four that have already been constructed during the first phase.

Architects Ortner & Ortner Baukunst have grouped the 14 buildings around terraces and because of different heights of the buildings, the image of a lively street is created, which opens up to the surrounding landscape on the south side.

Construction will commence in the second quarter of 2019 and the buildings will be in use by the end of 2022.

The entire W&W campus is expected to be completed in 2023.

Earlier in February 2019, Bath and North East Somerset Council, UK, has appointed BAM Construction’s Western team for the Bath South Quays development in the historic Bath city.

The first newly built office building in Bath for more than 25 years, the development is now in its final design stages.

Located along the River Avon, the regeneration scheme is being delivered in phases, including the demolition of some existing structures; laying sheet piling foundations for a bridge that will be delivered later; and building a suite of offices.

The £21.5m scheme will be handed over in phases and completed in 2021.

BAM is conducting the enabling works under an enabling works agreement.

Bath stone and traditional brick will be used on the new building, which is in close proximity to listed buildings.

The West of England Local Enterprise Partnership has part-funded the scheme through the Local Growth Fund, administered by the West of England Combined Authority.
