Shirley regeneration project in UK

BAM Construction has been selected by Shirley Advance, a joint venture between Helical Bar and Coltham Developments, to deliver a £33m retail and residential regeneration building project in Shirley, West Midlands, UK.

The project includes an 85,000 square foot (7,897 square metres) food superstore, 70,000 square foot of additional retail space providing around 20 new retail units and an underground car park with space for more than 500 vehicles.

BAM's construction director in the Midlands John Mensforth said: "This scheme will develop valuable and much needed facilities for the people of Shirley."

Under the plan, BAM will also develop 27 three-bedroom townhouses and 56 one and two-bedroom apartments, with a mix of private and affordable housing.

The project started in 2004 and after completion the development is expected to be worth £85m.

Robert Birch of Shirley Advance said: "We are delighted that BAM are on board. They are a high calibre business with a great track record and we look forward to delivery of the scheme over the next couple of years."

Construction is scheduled to begin on site in the spring of 2012, with completion scheduled by spring 2014.

In 2009, Shirley Advance appointed BAM Construction to build the £40m Shirley Town Centre scheme, now known as Parkgate.
