Our vision is to be recognised as one of Europe’s leading sustainable and innovative construction businesses. In these challenging times, fostering a culture of innovation is crucial to help our clients and our own business adapt to a new post COVID-19 normal.
Across BAM we are committed to developing new solutions which will enable us all to achieve better outcomes such as improved performance, increased end user wellbeing, greater resilience and less environmental impact.
Delivering ground-breaking and iconic projects
Our team has brought some of UK’s most iconic buildings to life, using innovative construction techniques and approaches to deliver highly complex schemes such as the V&A in Dundee and Coal Drops Yard in London. In 2018, BAM constructed the world’s first 3D concrete bridge in the Netherlands and this year we will hand over Europe’s first passiv hospital, which is located in Frankfurt.
Sharing ideas across our business
Initiatives such as the Ministry of Cool, our innovation management platform, provide a space where people from around BAM can share their innovative ideas for creating new solutions and products. Some of these such as the world’s first electric road roller are already being deployed on roads in the Netherlands. Others are in the trial phase, such as the UK’s sensor and web platform, which monitors office environments and wellbeing to help companies improve workplaces and staff productivity and retention.

Building partnerships to develop new tools and approaches
partners with companies, institutions and universities across Europe to
develop new tools and approaches, which will enable us to address some
of the challenges we face as an industry. We are part of the
Construction Innovation Hub’s DfMA platform project, which will develop a
kit of parts for use in the public sector and we regularly work with
organisations such as UKGBC and CIBSE to create new guidelines for areas
such as Government Soft Landings, net zero buildings and the Circular
