Ask picks Bam for £105m First Street expansion

The office block planned for Plot 9a on First Street

Pension Insurance Corporation (PIC) has invested £105m to forward fund the 130,900 sq ft office block.

Plot 9a on the First Street estate is being brought forward by lead developer Ask and its joint venture partner, The Richardson Family.

The Government Property Agency (GPA) has taken a 25-year lease on the entire building, which will accommodate around 2,500 civil servants.

The building has been designed to be rated as BREEAM Excellent and be net zero carbon in operation.

Ask Real Estate managing director John Hughes said: “Having worked with Bam for a number of years, they have become a trusted contractor partner for us and this appointment continues our positive relationship.”

Bam northwest regional director Ian Fleming added: “The ‘holy grail’ in the construction sector, which enables gold standard collaboration, is the early involvement between all the parties and in particular, developer and contractor. This pre-construction phase is where problems get identified and solved, partnerships are forged, and ideas and solutions realised that add value to a scheme and guide it to success.

“That’s our experience of working with Ask – it means our ability to enhance the sustainability and social value of how we work and what a scheme can achieve is improved. I know that the great challenges of a scheme like this can be met through the innovation and creativity our partnerships will bring.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
