The first art storage facility in the world to offer access to a museum's complete collection − 151,000 artworks available for browsing by the public − completed its top levels in September 2019. This mirror-clad art icon − for which 1,664 mirrored façade panels were used − will also accommodate four professional restoration studios, two film booths, an educational space and a cinema. BAM Bouw en Techniek is set to complete the project in 2020, after which Depot Boijmans van Beuningen will open its doors to the public in 2021.
The new neighborhood Tivoli GreenCity is an unique example of a sustainable urban development. It includes a mixed-used program of 397 passive housing apartments (35% zero-energy) in eleven buildings. Tivoli also includes sustainability mobility facilities, and semipublic parks conceived as biodiversity laboratoriums. Besides innovating sustainable energy systems, there is also an experimental greenhouse. This urban development has won various sustainability awards and is even in the process of being certified by BREEAM ('outstanding' certification) as 'the most sustainable development in the world'.
As part of a larger project to improve the rail connection between Aberdeen and Inverness, BAM Nuttall doubled the tracks between Dyce and Inverurie and upgraded the signalling system between Aberdeen and Huntly. In a fifteen-week project, over ten miles of new rail was laid across more than 41,000 sleepers and nineteen bridges on the line were either refurbished or replaced. These upgrades will help to increase services and cut journey times.
A fine example of form and functionality, the flyover to access the new bus station at Zwolle's railway station carries traffic high above the station's six railway tracks. Suspended between two concrete bridges, the S-shaped, one-piece steel bridge spans a length of 110 metres. The bridge was awarded the Thüringer engineering award, a bi-annual German prize for engineers and architects who have made an important contribution to complex building projects.
A unique and inspiring office building for the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) represents a cultural shift within UKHO's way of working, prioritising collaborative and agile workspaces for the 850 staff. The new building of 11,000 square metres takes a very robust approach to sustainability adopting natural ventilation wherever possible. Outstanding levels of natural daylight are owed to the glazed atrium and generous 3.5-metre floor-to-ceiling heights, helping to reduce the need for artificial lighting. The project, modelled to BIM Level 2, is on course to achieve BREEAM Excellent.
This six-kilometre railway tunnel from Stuttgart's central railway station to Bad Cannstatt is part of the large-scale project Stuttgart21’. The overall aim of the project is to improve the infrastructure in and around Stuttgart and to further integrate the area in the European rail network. Construction of the tunnel plus rescue tunnel and smoke extraction structure is realised with the drill-and-blast method and a tunnel excavator.
Just south of Birmingham, Grade II* listed Studley Castle has been transformed into a hotel. Dating from 1834, the castle has been restored and refurbished and is now the fourteenth hotel of Bourne Holidays group. A new building connects the monumental building with the old stables located behind. More than two hundred rooms and extensive wellness facilities are housed in the modern hotel of historic character. The team of BAM Construction has worked closely with Bourne Leisure to develop the design and construction strategy to deliver the rejuvenation of this historical heritage.
South of Charleroi, Galère together with BAM Contractors has completed the second phase of the Couvin motorway bypass. This phase included the construction of an 8.6-kilometre-long motorway through the hills east of Couvin, for which approximately three million cubic metres of soil and rock had to be moved. In addition, various constructions were realised, including seven viaducts, and 190,000m2 of concrete paving was laid. The motorway bypass is part of the E420, the most important connection between Charleroi and the French border.
