Supporting the NHS to tackle COVID

BAM delivered the NHS Nightingale Hospital in Harrogate.


BAM delivers high quality, functional and sustainable health and care facilities. 

We achieve this by:


  • Listening closely to our clients and end users to ensure schemes meet operational and clinical requirements from day one. 
  • Having an in-depth understanding of the key factors for successful delivery including keeping the impact of works to a minimum and the ability to work in highly constrained sites. 
  • Our track record of delivering schemes via major healthcare frameworks, such as the P22 framework, where we have delivered 25 projects to date
  • Sharing best practice and lessons learned with our colleagues across Europe
  • Embracing the latest technologies and approaches to achieve greener and more efficient facilities
£2bn schemes schemes delivered in the last 30 years
25 number number delivered under the P22 framework
28% reduction reduction in electricity use at Wharfdale hospital
42kW photovoltaic photovoltaic panels used at Morriston Hospital


Faster and leaner construction

As a business we are adopting modern methods of construction, helping us to improve efficiency, reduce waste and improve quality. At Aintree Hospital, Urgent Care & Trauma department we used modular buildings for the seminar room, outpatients and offices, resulting in zero defects at handover and programme benefits. While our use of a timber frame at Stobhill Hospital saved time and money.




Supporting the NHS to tackle COVID 

BAM delivered the NHS Nightingale Hospitals in Harrogate and Exeter. This involved converting an old DIY store into a 116 bed hospital in just 57 days and transforming the Harrogate conference centre into a 500 bed facility in less than three weeks. Both these schemes are a testament to exceptional teamwork with BAM employees, our supply chain and local volunteers coming together to support the NHS.

Low carbon and sustainable 

Government carbon reduction targets combined with a greater public awareness of climate change are pushing sustainability firmly onto the agenda. BAM is working with health clients to identify ways to reduce energy and improve the performance of new and existing facilities. At Morriston Hospital, the new Specialist Rehabilitation Centre uses passive building design to reduce energy demand. It also features 42kW photovoltaic panels, which will export surplus energy to the main site. We also cut electricity use in Wharfedale Hospital’s theatres by 28%, saving six tons of carbon annually.

Drawing on European best practice

We are able to draw on the knowledge and expertise of our teams across Europe, allowing us to share their health care best practice with our clients in the UK. In Germany, BAM is currently constructing the world’s first hospital built on Passiv principles and our Dutch projects regularly involve whole life performance considerations such as embodied carbon and maintenance when choosing materials and products. Other Dutch schemes such as Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam are using building design to support the healing environment.
