BAM Construction appointed to build Hull Venue
Hull City Council has appointed BAM Construction to build a new music, events and conference centre in the city.
Plans for the £36.2mvenue are integral to Hull's legacy planning following its year as UK City of Culture 2017. The centre will include a 3,500 capacity concert auditorium, with the flexibility to reduce to a 2,500 all-seated event and a 2,000sq m exhibition space, plus an 800 capacity conference auditorium.
A revised planning application for the venue was submitted to Hull City Council's Planning Committee in December, addressing concerns raised by the committee earlier in the month when its members refused an initial application. The revised plans will be considered again by the committee early in February.
Detailed feasibility studies and market testing show that the facility will inject £13.5m into Hull’s economy annually.
Hull City Council has committed £36.2m towards the cost of building the complex on the site behind Princes Quay shopping centre, where new retail facilities and a hotel are proposed. The investment will also modernise the adjacent Osborne Street car park.
"I am absolutely committed to this landmark project, which is critical to the development of the city and our plans to make Hull a world-class visitor destination,” said Stephen Brady, leader of the council.
"We will formally hand over the City of Culture title to another city in 2020, but this development will allow us to continue to attract events capable of delivering a big economic impact beyond that.”
If approved by Planning Committee in February, work on the development will begin later in 2016, with completion scheduled for early 2018.
