BAM awarded refurbishment contract for London offices at 1 Page Street

Real estate investment management firm Derwent London has awarded BAM Construct UK with a contract to complete the refurbishment of London offices – formerly occupied by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Located at 1 Page Street, Westminster, the property measures 11,000 square metres and sits on the former site of Westminster Hospital.

The building has been let to British fashion house, Burberry, since the government department moved from the site.

BAM Construct will carry out refurbishment work – set to cost £23 million – on 1 Page Street’s interior and exterior features; bricks and punched windows will replace the existing glass facade, while the building’s interior will see an electrical and mechanical renewal.

Following the announcement, Bam Construct’s company director, Mike Donegan spoke enthusiastically about the project.

He said: “The project will require a comprehensive reworking of the existing building, particularly given its historic uses. We look forward to creating the fantastic office space that this prime location deserves, and continuing relationship with Derwent.

“The London commercial sector is beginning to improve after a difficult few years and BAM is proving that it is well placed to play a big role in its future.”
