BAM has been confirmed as the construction partner for phase one of Nuneaton town centre’s Abbey Street development.
BAM was also recently appointed to create Nuneaton and Bedworth’s Physical Activity Hub in Miners’ Welfare Park, Bedworth. It has now commenced work on creating a 145-bedroom Hampton by Hilton hotel in Nuneaton.
BAM has already completed initial works involving fencing, ground investigations and remediation. The company is the contractor behind the acclaimed redevelopment of Birmingham’s Paradise Circus, where it created some £250 million of new buildings within a half mile.
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council is the developer for the new scheme, with its strategic development partner Queensberry. The project will see enabling works, preparation work for new leisure developments and public open spaces completed, together with the building of the town centre’s first hotel.
The appointment of BAM ensures the next stages of the project following the acquisition of land and property, demolition and some enabling works which have already been completed.
The phase one work has been funded with a grant from the Future High Streets Fund as part of the Government’s plan to renew and reshape town centres – making them a more attractive place to live, work and visit.
Phase two of the Abbey Street project will include new buildings for leisure operators, a food hall, a town centre campus for North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College and a multi-storey car park.
