Sustainability / CSR
Our services encompass every phase of the construction process, from development to design to construction, finance, operation and maintenance. We are a leader in PPP and play a key role providing Ireland’s health, education, and transport infrastructure.
Operating successfully for over 60 years, the bedrock of BAM‘s success has always been an understanding of our clients’ needs and a willingness to deliver innovative solutions that ensure cost savings and meet and surpass their environmental requirements. Our track record for delivering large and small scale projects on budget and ahead of schedule has enabled us to become one of Ireland’s largest and strongest construction businesses.
BAM has collaborated with government bodies and major national and international clients and consultants to produce landmark projects that support the development of Ireland and its economy.
BAM is widely recognised in Ireland and overseas for its sustainable project delivery. This is driven by the company’s significant investment in technologies that reduce the environmental impact of construction activity. The company has led the way in the Irish market in pioneering BIM, which provides 3D computer models for efficient visualisation and analysis of proposed works to increase efficiency in the design and construction phases.
CSR is at the core of BAM’s strategic agenda, it’s at the heart of everything we do, focusing on people, communities and the environment.
In February 2019 BAM Ireland staff and their families were joined by ‘Trees on the Land’ as they volunteered to help plant, 9,000 trees at four locations across the island of Ireland.
By the end of 2019 Royal BAM Group will have planted 150,000 trees in locations around the world to highlight its sustainability agenda and commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, including 50,000 across Europe in countries where BAM has operations.
The tree planting, that included a mix of native Irish species, took place in Ballineen, County Cork, Newcastle in County Wicklow, Brookeborough in County Fermanagh and Ballymoney, County Antrim. CEO of BAM Ireland, Theo Cullinane, described the project as part of BAM’s “dedication to preserve the planet for future generations”.
Around 100 BAM volunteers were involved in the all-island project helping to plant 2,500 trees in Wicklow, 3,000 in Antrim and 3,000 in Fermanagh. All events were carried out with Irish charity the Green Economy Foundation and their ‘Trees on the Land’ project – a cross-border initiative to establish young native trees in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. BAM is also working with Netherlands-based charity ‘Trees for All’ on the planting of 100,000 trees in afforestation projects in South America and Africa. See our tree planting video
