Wham BAM For Paradise Plan
BAM Construction, which is currently building 183K SF Two Chamberlain Square, will now manage the completion of One Chamberlain Square and the existing building supply chain. Work was halted shortly after topping out on 15 January when the original contactor, Carillion, went into liquidation.
The majority of subcontractors who were working on the building returned on 23 March when BAM formally takes over the site.
Demolition contractor DSM has remained active on site at Paradise throughout the winter period, maintaining the programme for Two Chamberlain Square.
“Ever since Carillion went into liquidation on 15 January we have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure disruption to Paradise was kept to a minimum," Argent Regional Director Rob Groves said.
"Having BAM on board for the building along with remaining close to subcontractors and the supply chain means we are now able to move ahead with getting One Chamberlain Square completed as soon as we can. We will be very pleased to see contractors back on site later this month and the building progressing towards completion over the next year."
