As BAM’s work to rebuild the sea-wall at Dawlish enters its final phase, our COO John Wilkinson visited the Devonshire town with ITN Business to explain the importance of the project and why it reflects the values and priorities of BAM UK and Ireland’s business.

In Dawlish, we’ve faced up to the challenges faced by our coastal communities from climate change. The new sea wall will protect the local town and railway for the next 100 years.

In delivering the scheme we exhibited the values for which BAM has always been recognised– closely collaborating with our clients and our supply chain; innovating in how we deliver; dedication to sustainability and driving down our carbon footprint while understanding the needs of the communities in which we work.
