The University of the West of England has appointed BAM to deliver a £16million Enterprise Zone.
The scheme is a refurbishment and remodelling of an existing 4250m2 building including an internal fit-out and M&E upgrades and installations.
The new building will provide incubation space for start-up businesses and contain the Bristol Robotics Laboratory.
It was procured against competition through the Construction Framework for the South West. Parsons Brinckerhoff is the architect.
Professor Martin Boddy, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research and Business Engagement at UWE said:
“We are delighted to have BAM help us develop the first University Enterprise Zone supported by the government, just one of four in the country. Construction is now underway for this development on the Frenchay Campus which will provide significant support to the region’s innovation and business growth.”
BAM is commencing on site and completes in July 2016.
