Bam Construction wins £12.5m Leeds home

Bam Construction has won a £12.5m deal to build new facilities for Adel Beck Secure Children’s Home in Leeds.

The contractor will build the new accommodation adjacent to the site of the out-dated existing buildings.

Bam will create 24 bedrooms, a teaching block, a canteen, leisure facilities and administrative space.

The buildings will be predominately single storey to conform with government guidelines and Bam will carry out extensive enabling works including access road improvements, demolition and car park creation.

Work on the pre-cast concrete frame will begin in August, with completion scheduled for January 2015.

The architect is Keppie Design. Bam Plant is providing site accommodation, temporary electrics, fire detection and communications.

Bam recently completed the £60m Leeds Arena and is refurbishing the Calverley Building for Leeds Metropolitan University.  

Previous projects in the centre of Leeds include the prestigious restoration of the City Varieties Music Hall, and development of commercial premises known as Latitude.
