Over £40m of new buildings completed in Somerset

Residents in Somerset and North Somerset have three new buildings at their disposal, contractor BAM Construction announced.

They are the Blackbrook Pool in Taunton, a new secure healthcare facility in Wellington and the new North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College (NSETC) in Weston-super-Mare.

Collectively the new buildings represent around £40 million of investment in the leisure, health and education sectors.

BAM’s Regional Director for the Western region, Nick Goff, said:

“These are very different buildings in design and use. A leisure building such as Blackbrook Pool is going to be used by the local community both young and old, while a modern education establishment like NSETC needs to be quite high-tech because children learn in a totally different way now to how my generation did. Even more different is our secure mental health building for Montpelier Estates in Wellington, because the tranquillity and care required for treating mental illness is a totally separate concept.”
