Middlesbrough Council Appoints BAM to deliver £20m Boho X

Boho X is the latest development of The Digital City, which is jointly funded by Middlesbrough Council and the Tees Valley Combined Authority.  It will see the expansion of the Middlesbrough Digital Quarter, locally known as Boho – The Digital City. The Digital City has a total investment potential of £250m of commercial, residential, leisure, retail and education use.

Boho X will deliver an iconic building that provides high quality office accommodation tailored towards digital and creative companies with outstanding amenities and facilities including café space, lecture theatre and gym.  It will ensure that the Digital City is the destination for emerging and expanding digital companies.

Middlesbrough Council has appointed BAM Construct UK to deliver the project following a two-stage procurement process via the North East lot of the Procure Partnerships Framework.

BAM is one of the most successful construction and property services companies in the country. Its services include property development, design, construction, services engineering, facilities management and energy.

With a strong regional presence, BAM works to develop long-term relationships with customers, consultants, supply chain and local communities that are consistent with the BAM values of predictable performance, proactive ownership, open collaboration and scalable learning. 

Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston said: “Boho X will be a stunning, ambitious and genuinely world-beating building that will meet and exceed the highest expectations of the flourishing creative and digital sector.

“By working closely with leading architects and industry experts we’re creating a campus-style development with truly incredible facilities that will really put Middlesbrough on the map.

BAM Construct UK have a proven track record in delivering the sort of buildings that transform towns and cities, and I’m delighted to have them on board.”

Robbie Blackhurst, Framework Director at Procure Partnerships commented on the scheme: “Boho X is the first project we have facilitated for Middlesbrough Council, we have worked closely with the council to forge a strong relationship and we are delighted to have supported it through the two-stage procurement process. Boho X is a landmark project for Middlesbrough that will transform the city’s skyline, the Council and Tees Valley Combined Authority’s ambitious plans promise to reinvigorate the region and this exciting scheme puts a spotlight on the potential that investment can foster.”
