BAM chosen to develop first phase of Sheffield Retail Quarter

BAM has been selected to construct the first phase of Sheffield's Retail Quarter Development.

Chosen as main contractor by Sheffield City Council, work on the first phase of the £480 million mixed-use commercial and retail project is already underway.

The scheme, which will include a new city centre location for HSBC bank, also includes 160,000 sq ft of office and 57,500 sq feet of retail space.

BAM construction director Kelvin Pollard said: “This is Sheffield’s most significant construction scheme, and our track record in the City is already second to none, so BAM is thrilled to be working on something that affects the lives of so many people here.

"It’s a demanding and complex scheme, requiring a well-developed suite of skills and expertise, and a modern approach to technology and collaboration. That is our reputation in a nutshell. We’re already on site and are excited by the challenge of making it happen.”

The project is due for completion in the first half of 2019.
