At BAM Nuttall, we do things differently. As a founding member of I3P, the innovation platform for construction, we’re a catalyst for change across the industry. We continually seek new ways to improve productivity, sustainability and safety.

We challenge the norms of civil engineering by exploring other industries and other markets to learn new ways of working. We encourage our people, and our partners, to do the same – so we can push the boundaries of what’s possible.

We are fully embracing digital ways of working to improve the safety, sustainability and buildability of our projects. As part of the BAM Group, we strive to become the market leader in digital technology. And we’ve invested heavily in training to ensure our people have the skills to match our ambition.

Our digital construction methods include:

  • Building Information Modelling (BIM) to give us a clearer understanding of the design, so we can foresee issues before they become a problem.
  • Virtual technologies such as augmented reality to enable our project team, client and stakeholders to experience an asset before it is constructed.
  • Robotics and 3D printing to offer safer, more innovative ways of fabricating and constructing items on and off site.

Benefits of our digital construction approach:


  • Faster and smarter decisions
  • Performance certainty
  • Optimised solutions
  • Manage risks


  • Earlier marketing
  • Understand the design better
  • Identify issues and solutions


  • Zero harm
  • On time and on budget
  • Zero waste
  • High quality
  • Detailed as built information


  • Assets deliver as expected
  • Proactive maintenance
  • Ability to plan in advance
  • Less downtime and disruption
  • Improved efficiency


Our sector provides value to millions of people, but uses many resources in the process. In engineering, a sustainability strategy is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’. Now is the time for change. We are striving to lead our industry to a positive, sustainable future.

Across the Royal BAM Group, we work by a ‘One BAM’ purpose, to build sustainable environments that enhance people’s lives. We use state-of-the-art knowledge, resources and digital technologies, to provide sustainable solutions across the construction lifecycle.
