Bam wins £22m Africa House job

Bam Construction has won a £22 million refurbishment job on Grade II listed Africa House in central London.

The division of Bam Construct will increase the commercial building’s floor space to 15,600 sq m, and upgrade its environmental features to give it a BREEAM Excellent rating.

Africa House is located at 64 - 78 Kingsway, near Holborn tube station, and is a development by Daejan Investments.

Works will be carried out around existing major retail tenants Ladbrokes and Wetherspoons, who will continue to trade.

Bam London construction manager Mike O’Donohoe said: “The building will be stripped entirely, apart from the listed areas. The rear wall will be partly demolished and the upper floor plates will be extended. The roof will be demolished and a new storey added.

Enabling works have begun on site, with the project scheduled for completion in autumn 2012.
