BAM’s involvement in Middlesbrough’s Digital Quarter, locally known as Boho – The Digital City – dates back to 2009 when it established the first Boho Digital Enterprise Centre, followed in 2011 by Tuned In at My Place in Redcar, a state-of-the-art media and arts facility for the young people of Redcar and Cleveland, part of the town’s ongoing wider regeneration.
BAM is currently behind the new Regent Cinema in Redcar and the new Northern School of Art in Middlesbrough, both of which are progressing rapidly on site. It has recently put the finishing touches to the new High Tunstall College of Science in Hartlepool.
“As a well-established contractor in the area we bring local skills, local sub-contractors and create local jobs, and use local apprentices to return a great deal of the investment to the people who live and work here. Being good neighbours is very important to us.”
BAM’s track record in Middlesbrough also includes three buildings for Teesside University: The Curve, the Institute of Digital innovation and its Centre for Creative Technology.
