MORE than 800 BAM staff and subcontractors in Scotland downed tools across offices and sites recently to join colleagues across the globe in celebrating the 150thanniversary of parent company, Royal BAM Group.
Bruce Dickson, regional director said, “We are proud to have been part of the BAM family since they purchased GA Group in 1992. Royal BAM Group have invested heavily in Scotland throughout that time to support and grow the business into what it is today, whilst allowing us to retain our identity as a Scottish regional contracting business based in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
“150 years of trading is definitely something to celebrate in our industry and from our perspective having the support of a robust parent committed to the Scottish market is invaluable to both our staff and our clients.”
Some sites took the opportunity to organise fundraising events for the company’s charity partner, CLIC Sargent, while staff in Edinburgh and Glasgow took part in the Great BAM Bake-Off, putting their cakemaking prowess to the test.
BAM Construction has been responsible for a number of high profile buildings in Scotland such as the V&A Museum Dundee, the Riverside Museum in Glasgow and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh.
