New contracts for BAM in Luxembourg
Bunnik, the Netherlands, 17 December 2019 - BAM Lux, a subsidiary of BAM’s Walloon company Galère, has won four contracts with a combined construction value of more than €25 million.
The most extensive project concerns the concrete works for the office tower of the European Commission’s new complex in Luxembourg. This scheme, named Jean Monnet 2, has been commissioned by the Luxembourg building agency, Administration des Bâtiments Publics.
Jean Monnet 2 (phase 2)
The Jean Monnet 2 building complex will house the services of the European Commission in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The office centre will accommodate around 3,500 employees and is located in Luxembourg-Kirchberg. It comprises a 24-storey office tower (including 22 office floors and a technical floor), a lower seven-storey building and a Welcome Pavilion for visitors.
The contract for BAM includes the structural work of the office tower and the Welcome Pavilion, as well as the construction of the forecourt between these two buildings. Work will start in the first quarter of 2020 and will be completed by mid-2022. The project is designed by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten and the engineer is Bollinger + Grohmann Ingenieure (both based in Frankfurt, Germany).
Apartment buildings and sound barrier
The other contracts include the structural works for several apartment buildings and the construction of a sound barrier.
BAM Lux will transform a former bank office in Bertrange into a residential building, called A1, for Bertrange Development SA. This has 21 high-end apartments over existing underground parking.
BAM Lux has also won a contract for housing association SNHBM (Société Nationale des Habitations à Bon Marché) to deliver the concrete works of five residential buildings with 33 apartments in Olm, west of Luxembourg city. Following housing projects in Hautcharage and Lamadelaine, this is the third project for SNHBM. BAM Lux will complete the apartment buildings at the end of October 2020.
The Luxembourg highways agency Administration des Ponts et Chaussées has awarded BAM a contract to construct a 2,250-metre long sound barrier on the south side of the A13 motorway, which is located in the south of Luxembourg.
