One is for the structural framework of a hospital in Liege and the other is for the second phase of the construction of a ring road near Couvin.
In Liege BAM’s local operating company Galère will build the shell of MontLégia Hospital through a joint venture with BPC, CIT Blaton and Moury. The client is Centre Hospitalier Chrétien. The new general hospital will have 720 beds and 120 beds for day care. It has been designed by the architectural joint venture AAH, made up of Assar Architects - Artau - Hoet + Minne. The new building will comprise two 200m-long wings with six floors each. The contract for the structural framework involves an amount of €50m, of which approximately €16m is for Galère.
Galère will work on the road contract with BAM Contractors and Wanty. The project involves the construction of a motorway stretching some 8.6km and cutting across the hills to the east of Couvin. Approximately three million cubic metres of earth and rock will have to be excavated. Various structural works, including seven viaducts, will also be realised and 190,000m2 of concrete pavement laid down. The construction period will start in August and will last approximately two years. The contract value amounts to approximately €50m, of which €34m is for BAM.
