BAM Appointed for Dunsbury Business Park in Havant in Portsmouth
Portsmouth City Council, working through Procure Partnerships, has appointed BAM Construction and BAM Design to create the fifth unit at the 45-acre
Portsmouth City Council, working through Procure Partnerships, has appointed BAM Construction and BAM Design to create the fifth unit at the 45-acre business Park which was formerly farm land. BAM Design is also the master plan architect for the business park. Unit five will be a 10,000 square meter industrial warehouse and 750 square meter office which is being taken by Bio Pure Technologies Ltd, part of the high-end industrial & pharmaceutical pipework specialist Watson-Marlow. The company’s products are highly valued by customers in the biopharmaceutical sector, a sector which has been at the forefront of news during the global pandemic. The building will be ready for production in 2022 when it will create around 120 new manufacturing and engineering jobs.
The circa GBP 12.5 million works follow the creation of three other units by BAM that are now occupied by 3M Fat Face, VW, and DPD UK. The new facility is the largest of the plots to be developed so far.
The development of the business park began in 2016. The Portsmouth City Council-owned business park is expected to generate millions of pounds of rental income for the authority.
BAM has been on site in preparation for works commencing while the final contractual elements were agreed and is now commencing works in earnest.
