For over 60 years, BAM has been at the centre of shaping Ireland’s built environment, in more recent times helping public and private sector clients reduce carbon emissions and enhance sustainability over the lifecycle of their buildings and infrastructure.
BAM Ireland is part of the UK and Ireland Division of the Royal BAM Group of the Netherlands.
An integral part of its sustainable strategy for 2023 is to have an overall positive impact on biodiversity and climate. As verified by its leadership position on the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) A-List, Irish Green Building Council membership, and its most recent Green Construction Award win at the Green Awards 2023, it has set an ambitious carbon target to become net zero in its direct operations by 2026.
People are the foundation of BAM’s strategy – Building a Sustainable Tomorrow. Through this, it wants to remain the employer of choice, leading with an open and diverse culture where it cares for the environment and the communities it works in – both today and tomorrow.
Around the country, its highly skilled teams use digital construction and industrialised construction methods to help ensure energy-efficient operations. It also works with expert industry partners, academic researchers, the government, its highly valued supply chain, customers and end users to embed a circular approach to how it designs, constructs and operates buildings and infrastructure.
Alasdair Henderson, Executive Director, BAM Ireland, comments, “As a purpose-led business, we aim to create a sustainable infrastructure that meets the needs of society whilst ensuring that we leave a lasting legacy. The continuously increasing loss of biodiversity and the climate crisis is a severe threat to our planet, and our industry can play a crucial role in reversing their effects.”
Recent awards include the BIM Excellence Award for the Department of Education Lot 2 Schools Project and Leisure Award for Aparthotel, Little Mary Street (ICE Awards 2023), as well as the already mentioned Green Construction category award win at the 2023 Green Awards.
