Bam Construction wins Co-op headquarters contract

BAM Construction has won the £100m contract to build the Co-op’s new flagship headquarters near Victoria Station in Central Manchester.

The scheme, part of a wider redevelopment of the group’s Miller Street campus, is a 15-storey block with 30,000mВІ of offices. Construction is expected to start at the beginning of next year. 

It will serve the Co-op’s retail arm and is designed to be one of the most sustainable buildings in Europe.

The huge building is the first phase in a 20-acre regeneration project around Miller Street, for which an Arup-designed masterplan has already been endorsed by the city council.
