BAM Construction has started work on the first of two projects for the University of Lincoln worth a combined £28.5m.

 Isaac Newton Building

The firm’s Leeds office has started work on a £16m contract for the Isaac Newton Building, which will house the institution’s engineering, computer science and maths and physics departments. 

This project involves extending and re-configuring some of the existing engineering hub, a facility BAM built in 2011, to create a further 7,500 sq m of floor area.

Facilities inside the Isaac Newton Building – named after the famous Lincolnshire-born scientist – will include a semi-anechoic chamber; a Faraday Cage; and a 500-seat lecture theatre.

Completion of the project is expected in Spring 2017.

The 60,000 sq ft building is named after Lincolnshire-born Dame Sarah Swift, a 19th Century nursing leader who founded the Royal College of Nursing

Meanwhile detailed design work is taking place on the Sarah Swift Building, which will be built under a £12.5m contract as home to the University’s Schools of Health & Social Care and Psychology.

The five-storey building will house teaching areas, laboratories and other facilities. The building will include vibration-sensitive equipment which requires BAM to meet certain design specifications.

BAM Construction is working with sister firm BAM Design on the Sarah Swift Building, which is due for completion in May 2017.

Construction manager Jason Pink said: “Working with BAM Design means we can work even more efficiently, drawing best value solutions into the design.

“Being based in the same office means we can review the design side by side as it develops, promoting buildability and keeping within the client’s budget.”
