Bam UWE interior

University of the West of England has selected construction giant BAM for a £16m refurbishment and remodelling project involving construction of Enterprise Zone in Bristol, UK.

In addition to the redevelopment works for an existing 4250m² building, the project will also require the developer to fit-out its interiors and work for its mechanical and electrical (M&E) upgrades and installations.

The planned development is expected to offer incubation space for start-up firms and house the Bristol Robotics Laboratory.

BAM has won the project through a competitive bidding for the Construction Framework for the South West.

Parsons Brinckerhoff is the architect for the development, works for which have already been initiated.

BAM is expected to complete works for the redevelopment project in July this year, the firm said.
