BAM pauses construction activity from tonight

Hemel Hempstead, 25 March 2020 - Construction activity at BAM Construct sites across the UK will pause from close of business on Wednesday 25 March to enable further detailed reviews of the working practices necessary to reduce the risks of Covid-19.

BAM is determined to maintain the highest levels of safety for our employees and their families, our supply chain, our clients, along with the wider public.

Enabling the safest working conditions, as set out by Public Health England and the new Site Operating Procedures developed by Build UK and the Construction Leadership Council, requires more time for detailed discussions and collaboration with clients, employees and our supply chain.

Where work can be delivered according to these guidelines, it is anticipated that sites will re-start from Monday 30 March. This date will be kept under constant review.

Facilities management activity at BAM Construct across the UK has been assessed against the current guidelines and will continue.

The majority of our facilities management sites are Government public sector buildings which are all critical to our national effort to combat the Covid-19.

BAM FM work in sectors such as health and social care, education, key public services, local and national government, public safety and national security, transport and financial services. The FM teams are working hard to keep these buildings operational. 

All our operations remain under constant review.
