BAM Construction secured a pre-construction services agreement at the start of the year and had been working closely with the developer, Beijing Construction Engineering Group on the Boho X office scheme.
But the contract was retendered in April this year after budget issues arose.
Now Galliford Try’s North East and Yorkshire building team has secured the six-storey town centre project through the Procure Partnership Framework, with the council saying the firm had committed to delivering Boho X within the approved project funding and within the required timeframe.
The scheme, with funding from the Tees Valley Combined Authority, also includes a gym and studio area, along with entertaining spaces on the rooftop, including a lecture theatre, terrace and bar area.
Galliford Try has set an ambitious target of spending 80% of the costs within the local supply chain, and creating employment opportunities for local entrants into the industry and engagement targets for nearby schools, colleges and community groups.
Cliff Wheatley, Managing Director of Galliford Try Building North East and Yorkshire, said: “We are delighted to have been entrusted by Middlesbrough Council to deliver this important new facility for the local community.
“In a post-pandemic world, high-quality working spaces are still going to be necessary, and we look forward to working with all the stakeholders involved to produce a real statement building for the town centre.”
