To coincide with Green Building Week, one of the biggest design and construction firms in the UK, BAM Construct UK, is launching a sustainability microsite to showcase its green building credentials.
BAM has recently delivered highly sustainable structures such as the Co-Operative Group Headquarters in Manchester, Leeds Arena and the National Centre for Network Rail in Milton Keynes, 'as well as providing pre-construction advice to Google on its proposed Kings Cross HQ.
Now it has brought together all its experience and understanding on to one dynamic portal for internal and external use.
The website, BAM sustainability, is broken into six key performance indicators for the business : sustainable design; carbon; resource efficiency; sourcing responsibly; community; and health and wellbeing. Other areas of the microsite follow BAM’s excellent sustainability progress, introduce the motivated and experienced sustainability team and include the company’s expert industry insights. BAM Director of Sustainability Nitesh Magdani said: “We believe in a cradle-to-cradle approach, which means looking at the environmental and commercial impacts of a building through its whole life cycle with the aim of minimising value destruction at the end of a product’s life”. “The sustainability team at BAM includes a range of professionals from site managers and environmentalists to architects. We advise our teams on issues including sustainable design; waste and environmental management; community engagement; LEED and BREEAM certification; Post Occupancy Evaluations; and air quality issues. "The microsite will help BAM teams work even more slickly to promote truly sustainable solutions to clients – but it will also be a valuable resource for others in the industry to learn from our experience and expertise.”
