Bam Construction has been named preferred contractor for the first phase of a £350m development in Leeds.
The firm has been chosen by developer CEG for a 38,000 sq ft speculative development incorporating office space with ground floor break out space, retail and leisure.
Work is set to begin in early 2020.
The second phase, which also has detailed planning permission, could begin at the same time and would include a 138,168 sq ft building with ground floor retail and leisure.
Globe Point is based in a new district in Leeds city centre, south of the River Aire, called Temple, which is part of the South Bank Regeneration Area.
Bam Construction director in the North-east John Phillips said: “This is an imaginative and bold scheme and any contractor would be excited to be involved with it.
“Bam is all about building considerately and using our opportunity to enhance lives and we will bring our modern attitudes and technical capabilities to the table and look forward to working with our partners.”
Stirling prize winning architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is working with CEG to masterplan Temple, which will take into account the city’s industrial heritage in its design work.
Bam is also working nearby on the remodelling of the Yorkshire Playhouse and on two schemes the University of Leeds.
