Plans to create The Northern School of Art in Middlesbrough, a £14.5 million scheme that will transform the gateway to the City, have taken a significant step forward after one of the UK’s largest and longest established contractors was appointed to deliver it.
BAM Construction, which has offices in Gateshead and has built in the North East since 1916, is to create the high-quality premises to 750 students.
It follows BAM’s appointment to create the Home Group’s new Headquarters in Newcastle this week.
The Northern School of Art is the only specialist provider of art and design education in the North East, providing a range of courses – including arts, design, theatre and film courses - from school leavers to postgraduates. It has an Outstanding Ofsted rating since 2009.
