BAM’s CAT B fit-out of the seven-storey state-of-the-art regional centre totals 20,500m2, and spans across all seven floors including the building’s roof. With a 49-week construction programme the work is due to complete in Spring 2022.
The fit-out aims to be BREEAM Excellent. It is a full BIM level two scheme.
BAM’s work with HMRC follows the successful handing over of the Atlantic Square building in Glasgow, for which BAM was joint-developer and main contractor. BAM Design, which was integral to the Glasgow building, is also engaged on the Manchester UK Government Hub fit-out scheme, as are BAM’s specialist services engineering team which is delivering a range of mechanical and electrical services.
The team is now on site and installing stud partitions and M&E. BAM co-ordinated vehicle access through six gated railway arches owned by Network Rail requiring detailed collaboration with Salford City Council and others, benefitting a nearby extensive residential refurbishment and maintaining a clear route for general traffic and pedestrians.
The council has thanked BAM saying it has ‘exceeded expectations’ and helped them coordinate their own works and assist the fluid and safe operation of the carriageway.
