Navigation and networking technology firm HERE has awarded a contract to construction giant Bam for renovating seven floors of the Kennedy Tower in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

Financial details about the project have not yet been disclosed.

Regional entity, Bam Bouw en Techniek Region South, has already started construction works for the project, which will involve renovation of the fifth to the twelfth floor of the building.

The developer is responsible for engineering works for the development and also for the execution of all of its architectural, mechanical and electrical works.

"Bam has also recently been appointed for a £16m refurbishment and remodelling project at the Enterprise Zone in Bristol, UK."

HERE expects to shift its offices to the new building from mid-April, following completion of the works. Around 300 of its employees will be shifted to the new office.

Complexity and speed of the renovation works remain as challenges for Bam, since the building will be still operational during the renovation.

Bam has also recently been appointed for a £16m refurbishment and remodelling project at the Enterprise Zone in Bristol, UK.

Expected to start from July this year, the project will involve reconstruction works for a 4250m² building, along with its interior set-ups and works for its mechanical and electrical (M&E) upgrades and installations.
