Bam pitch wins Lord's £16m cricket stand

Bam Construction has won a £16m deal to rebuild a stand at Lord’s cricket ground in London.

The MCC appointed the firm as preferred bidder for construction of the Warner Stand.

In a statement, the MCC confirmed it had appointed the contractor following a first-stage competitive tender for the construction of the Warner Stand. 

It added: “As the preferred bidder, Bam will now work with MCC to develop a second-stage tender sum.”

The new stand, designed by Populous Architects, will have a semi translucent roof and there will also be new match control and officials’ facilities and a restaurant.

Gardiner and Theobald are the consultants on the scheme.

According to data provider Glenigan, Bam beat bids from Willmott Dixon, ISG, Buckingham Group Contracting, and Galliford Try to win the job.

MCC is due to receive a decision from Westminster City Council on the club’s planning submission at the end of March.

Bam was responsible for building the Mound Stand at Lord’s in 1987. 

The project is part of a £200m proposed masterplan for the cricket ground which also includes rebuilding three other stands, a new entrance and other new buildings.
