Bam Construction, a unit under the Dutch Royal Bam Group, has been selected by Swiss chemical company Ineos for developing its new headquarters on Inchyra Road in Grangemouth, Scotland.

The development will be a part of the Swiss firm's plan to develop its 1,700 acre Grangemouth site.

Construction of the building is expected to cost around £17m, for which work has already been initiated.

Expected to be completed by the end of next year, the building will have four storeys comprising an area of 6,863m² in total.

Bam Construction Scotland regional director Douglas Keillor said: "We are delighted to have been selected by such a blue chip organisation as INEOS, to deliver this important part of its Grangemouth masterplan.

"Given that most of our projects have a long development stage; it's a nice change to be getting down to work straight away with a client that already knows exactly what they want."

"We are delighted to have been selected by such a blue chip organisation as INEOS, to deliver this important part of its Grangemouth masterplan."

The Grangemouth site houses the largest facility for the chemical company and has around 1,300 people working at the site.

The construction contract was awarded to Bam by Ineos following a competitive tender process.

The Scottish unit of the construction giant was responsible for multiple commercial building developments including offices for Scottish Water in Stepps, Glasgow and the seven-storey CONNECT110NS office in Queen Street, Glasgow.

Bam has recently won planning permission for a £70m office development, Latitude Yellow, in Leeds, UK. The firm has also initiated construction works for a new manufacturing centre for the consumer goods company Unilever at its Port Sunlight site in Birkenhead.
