HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has awarded a contract to BAM Construction to fit-out the new UK government hub building in Manchester.
The new UK Government Hub at Three New Bailey will be a seven-storey regional centre totalling 20,500m2 of area and accommodates approximately 2,000 civil servants.
The latest contract follows the delivery of the Atlantic Square building in Glasgow, for which BAM worked as a joint developer as well as the main contractor.
BAM stated that BAM Design, a team of architects, interior designers, structural and building services/environmental engineers, is also involved in the Manchester UK Government Hub fit-out scheme.
Construction work on the project will be carried out for 49-weeks and is expected to complete in 2022.
Currently, the team is installing stud partitions and M&E at the site.
HMRC Estates Location Programme director Colin Cassé said: “Three New Bailey will be the home for the HMRC Regional Centre as part of the new UK Government Hub in the North West, and we are looking forward to continuing our long-standing presence in Manchester.
“When completed, the building will offer bright, modern workspaces that meet the flexible and diverse needs of our colleagues and we are looking forward to it opening next year.”
Additionally, BAM is working on the James Potter Building, a new major trauma and acute receiving centre, for Salford Royal Hospital.
The hospital will serve as the hub for emergency general surgery for the north west part of Greater Manchester, especially areas of Bolton, Salford and Wigan.
