Bam Design wins planning permission for £10.4m Portsmouth hub

Planning permission has been awarded to Bam Design for a £10.4 million community building in Portsmouth.

Bam Design was appointed as concept architects and environmental engineers for ‘The Hub’ and is developing the scheme as part of 2-stage negotiated contact secured under the EiSE framework with Bam South East.

Director Steve Loughe said: “Obtaining planning consent is a major landmark for what has been an extremely challenging project. We have spent a great deal of time consulting with the local community and user groups to gain their trust and support it has thankfully paid off.

“The brief was to provide a landmark building, giving communities on both sides of the road equal access to the much needed new facilities .We also aimed to retain as much scarce open space as possible and spanning over the road achieves this, at the same time creating an iconic statement for the local community.”

The mixed-use scheme replaces outdated existing community facilities including a PCT medical practice, a local Housing Office, a new community centre and a youth club. Construction is due to commence in summer of 2012 with completion by the end of 2013.
