There are just a few days left for Glasgow residents to sign up for a tour of BAM Construction’s 110 Queen Street site, which will open up its doors to the public this month.

BAM Construction is participating in Open Doors Weekend 2013, a construction industry initiative that gives members of the public from across the UK the opportunity to go on a tour of a site in their area.

The 110 Queen Street site will be open on 27 and 28 September for the public to take a tour and to learn more about the project, its development and the world of construction. But places are limited so anyone interested must register online before the event to avoid missing out.

BAM Properties and the Scottish Government are investing £50 million to transform the empty building in Glasgow’s city centre into high quality retail and office space.

BAM senior site manager Brendan Patton said: “BAM is enjoying the challenge of turning this former bank building into top quality office and retail space at the heart of Glasgow. As always we are working to ensure we benefit the local economy and environment as well as the companies and shoppers who will use the finished buildings.

“It is fantastic to be able to welcome local residents to the site to give them a taste of what we are doing for Glasgow, as well as how modern construction projects come together.”

Open Doors Weekend is an industry initiative to present the sector in an engaging and interesting way and showcase the varied, dynamic and exciting career opportunities that construction has to offer. The project will also demonstrate the importance of construction to both the national and regional economies.

The scheme is the result of a partnership of four leading industry bodies, UK Construction Group (UKCG), CITB-ConstructionSkills, The Considerate Constructors Scheme and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
