BAM North West has been chosen by the HMRC to fit-out the new UK Government Hub at 3 New Bailey in Manchester
BAM’s CAT B fit-out of the seven-storey UK Government Hub totals 20,500 m2, and spans across all seven floors including the building’s roof.
The fit-out aims to be BREEAM Excellent and is a full BIM level two scheme.
BAM Design is engaged on the Manchester UK Government Hub fit-out scheme, as is BAM’s specialist services engineering team which is delivering a range of mechanical and electrical services.
The team is now on site and installing stud partitions and M&E.
‘Delivering bright, modern workspaces’
Ian Fleming, director of BAM in the North West, said: “We are a very versatile company working across many sectors and with a strong in-house capability in all disciplines of the built environment, and both the Atlantic Square and New Bailey schemes demonstrate how our joined-up business model delivers exactly what clients need.
“We were able to understand HMRC’s drivers from Atlantic Square, and the Atlantic Square team is acting as our peer review here at New Bailey, providing further quality assurance on how we operate.”
Colin Cassé, HMRC’s estates location programme director, added: “Three New Bailey will be the home for the HMRC Regional Centre as part of the new UK Government Hub in the North West, and we are looking forward to continuing our long-standing presence in Manchester.
“When completed, the building will offer bright, modern workspaces that meet the flexible and diverse needs of our colleagues and we are looking forward to it opening next year.”
3 New Bailey will be home to one of HMRC’s 13 modern regional centres across the UK.
With a 49-week construction programme the work is due to complete in Spring 2022.
