BAM Construction has won a £13 million deal to refurbish a 1970s tower block in the North East. The national contractor, which has offices in Gateshead, will undertake a major transformation of Newcastle College’s Parsons Tower. The teaching block will be given a contemporary facade with a variety of elevational treatments and new windows. BAM will also carry out an internal remodelling, and upgrade mechanical and electrical services. The project will provide a more comfortable, inspirational and sustainable building.
