Project involves the construction of a new 4,306m2 amenity building
BAM Construct has won a £25m contract to build new motorway services for users of the M25.
The development will be located between junctions 9 and 10 on the M25 near a site previously known as New Barn Farm.
Under the contract – which was awarded by Extra Motorway Services Group – BAM will construct a 4,306m2 ‘amenity building’ which will comprise retail outlets and a new hotel.
The new facility will also include over 900 spaces for car, caravan and coach parking as well as 72 HGV spaces. BAM has appointed Antony Nagle as its construction manager on the project.
Commenting on the contract award, BAM’s construction director, Bob Sanders said: “This is a major transport development in a significant location.
“BAM is extremely pleased to have been chosen by Extra in this single stage tender at a time of strong market competition, and we look forward greatly to forming a strong partnership to deliver facilities that will greatly benefit the lives of Britain’s busy travellers.’
Andrew Long, chief executive of Extra Motorway Service Area Group, said: “Extra is pleased to be working with BAM as one of the main contractors for this substantial development.
“Extra is investing approximately £77m in the overall project and we are very pleased to now see this come to fruition.”
Main construction work on the amenity building begins in mid-August with project completion scheduled for Summer 2012.
