Bam wins £90m King’s Cross office job

Bam Construction has been confirmed as the main contractor for a £90m office in King’s Cross.

The contractor will work with Argent to deliver the 125,000 sq ft S1 Handyside building on the developer’s King’s Cross Central site (pictured).

Carillion had been in the frame to build S1 after it worked on the nearby S2 office, which will be occupied by Google when it is completed by replacement contractor Midgard.

Argent construction director Joe Martin said: ”Although Carillion had provided some contractor involvement during the early design stages of building S1, BAM was awarded the project in October 2017 as part of an overall workload review at King’s Cross.”

In addition to the S1 job, Bam Construction took over from Carillion on Argent’s One Chamberlain Square development in Birmingham at the end of March.

Bam Construction is also building Two Chamberlain Square, which is due to be completed this autumn.

Work will commence on site at S1 this week, with completion scheduled for the end of 2020.

The new 12-storey office will have retail and restaurant space on the ground floor and feature a roof terrace.

Bam Construction has delivered several buildings on the King’s Cross redevelopment, including the Coal Drops Yard and German Gymnasium.

Argent said S1 does not have tenants lined up at present.
