BAM lands £38m education job

A teaching block for 1,400 students, designed by Sheffield architect Bond Bryan, will be delivered by the contractor at North Lindsey College in Scunthorpe.

The three-storey building will provide a new focal point on the college’s Kingsway Campus, consolidating teaching space within a modern sustainable building.

The building has been designed around a central social heart space and will include general and specialist classrooms, dining areas, a dedicated SEND area, and an auditorium. Students will benefit from new specialist teaching facilities such as commercial training kitchens and science laboratories.

BAM has been appointed to deliver the scheme by the Department for Education under the Construction Framework 2021.

“Once again, sustainability will be central to our approach, as we deliver a building that is net zero carbon in operation, and the work we will undertake here is perfectly aligned with BAM’s own commitment to build a sustainable tomorrow.’

“We’re excited to be involved in this dynamic project aimed at designing a modern, inviting, and inspiring building. Our aim is to develop outstanding facilities that will enhance learning, encourage social interaction, and facilitate various modes of work. This project is a fantastic opportunity that will support the DN College Group’s sustainability agenda by providing a Net Zero carbon in operation building.’
