BAM Construction has been appointed as main contractor to build a new office building for the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) in Taunton.

Work is due to get underway through the design stages with the Design Team, Cost Consultants and Main Contractor before seeking Planning permission later this year.

The UKHO will meet costs associated with the new office from business receipts as a self-funding agency.

Existing buildings on the site will be demolished, while land at the front of the site will be sold for redevelopment.

The UKHO is due to move into its new office in 2019.

UKHO Chief Executive John Humphrey said: "The redevelopment of UKHO's Admiralty Way site will see the construction of a new environmentally friendly office to create a modern, collaborative working environment. As well as bringing cost efficiency, the new building will deliver up-to-date technology and working conditions to enable UKHO to sustain a long-term future as a data-centric organisation."

Craig Allen, BAM Construction Director, added: "BAM is thrilled to be given the opportunity to work in collaboration with the UKHO team. We look forward to bringing their vision for future operations to life by delivering a building that will support its work in the digital age."
