There are just a few days left for Yorkshire residents to sign up for a tour of BAM Construction’s Bradford College site, which will open up its doors to the public this month.

BAM Construction is participating in Open Doors Weekend 2013, a construction industry initiative that gives members of the public from across the UK the opportunity to go on a tour of a site in their area.

Bradford College will be open on 27 and 28 September for the public to take a tour and to learn more about the project, its development and the world of construction. But places are limited so anyone interested must register online before the event to avoid missing out.

BAM is the main contractor for Bradford College’s multi-million-pound new campus. Part of Bradford College’s Accommodation Strategy, the campus will replace the Westbrook, Kent and McMillan buildings.

BAM construction manager Jason Pink said: “BAM is delighted to be playing in its part in creating modern facilities for Bradford, where the company has a strong track record. As always we are working to ensure we benefit the local economy and environment as well as the students of the college.

“It is fantastic to be able to welcome local residents to the site to give them a taste of what we are doing for Bradford, and how modern construction projects come together.”

Open Doors Weekend is an industry initiative to present the sector in an engaging and interesting way and showcase the varied, dynamic and exciting career opportunities that construction has to offer. The project will also demonstrate the importance of construction to both the national and regional economies.

The scheme is the result of a partnership of four leading industry bodies, UK Construction Group (UKCG), CITB-ConstructionSkills, The Considerate Constructors Scheme and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
