Contractor chosen for Five Acres development

Forest of Dean District Council has chosen BAM Construction to develop and build its new leisure, enterprise, and education facility at Five Acres.

The project will be completed in phases, with the initial phase focusing on dryside sport and leisure facilities through the repurposing of the Speedwell building, building a new multi-purpose four-court sports hall/performance space, party rooms/dressing rooms, and separate changing rooms – all with car parking facilities, including electric vehicle charging points. Justin Price, construction director at BAM Construction, said: “We are incredibly excited to be chosen as the contractor for the design and build of the new facilities at Five Acres. “We are aware of how much Five Acres means to the residents of the Forest of Dean and we will be holding several engagement events in the coming months so we can discuss the plans for the build in detail and we can’t wait to work with partners and the community to develop these incredible facilities.” Commissioned via Perfect Circle and through the SCAPE Consultancy framework, Pick Everard has also been appointed to the project to help establish the final design plans.
