Scottish Water has appointed Bam Construction as its preferred bidder for a £15 million National Operations Centre near Glasgow.
The contractor would deliver an ultra sustainable new build office with a new Intelligent Control Centre and Data Centre at Stepps, near Glasgow for the utilities organisation.
The four-storey, 7,300 sq m new build office will be designed around a central atrium and will incorporate a new Intelligent Control Centre and Data Centre at Stepps.
BAM Scotland’s regional pre-construction manager Paul Neil said: ‘We are delighted to be selected as preferred bidder for this strategically and environmentally important building.
“The project would allow BAM to showcase its expertise and experience in designing cost effective, highly sustainable and user friendly office buildings.”
The building will utilise the thermal mass of the concrete frame and will include a biomass boiler, thermal water heating and photovoltaic panels as well as sustainable urban drainage systems and rainwater harvesting.
Work is due to start in February 2012 and be completed in the summer of 2013.
