About Us

About Us

We are BAM Nuttall, part of the Royal BAM Group of civil engineers. Our group is one of Europe’s largest contractors, employing 20,000 people globally, with an annual turnover of £7 billion.

Established for more than 150 years, we deliver exceptional engineering, construction and investment services across private and public sector projects, in the UK and abroad. Our projects range from road, rail and airports, to marine, tunnelling, and energy schemes.

We’re driven by a desire to make a difference to communities, the environment and people’s lives. Our goal is to build sustainable infrastructure that helps economic growth and allows us be kind to our planet – today and in the future.

"The experience of our customers and communities where we work, depends on the quality of all our people, and their passion and commitment for delivering exceptional infrastructure, and making a positive, sustainable impact." -Steve Fox, Chief Executive, BAM Nuttall

OUR STRATEGY

Along with nine other operating companies in Royal BAM Group, we are pursuing our 2016-2020 strategy known as ‘Building the present, creating the future’. It’s all about doing new things, doing better things, and doing things better.

We do this through advancements in digital construction, safety & wellbeing and sustainable infrastructure. We’re committed to:

  • Leading the industry in digital construction and innovation, including BIM (Building Information Modelling).
  • Enhancing the lives of people who live and work in communities with sustainable infrastructure that helps economies grow.
  • Investing in our employees by creating safe places for them to work and supporting their development.
  • Focusing on environmentally friendly solutions with the goal of having a net positive impact on society by 2020.

INNOVATION

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.

The Learning Camera Project

We are the lead partner for a project to develop ‘The Learning Camera’, part funded by Innovate UK.

This project is a response to a call for ‘increases in productivity, performance and quality in UK construction’, particularly for people working on site.

DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION

DC

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:

Develop

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

Design

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

Build

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

Operate

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

SUSTAINABILITY

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.
