BAM UK & Ireland opens new Kilsyth office as energy decarbonisation programs drive growth

North Lanarkshire facility will provide new Scottish hub for BAM employees delivering major civil engineering and construction projects

Major construction and engineering firm, BAM has opened a new office in Kilsyth, creating a hub in Scotland for the company’s work decarbonising the UK’s energy network as well as delivering major public buildings and infrastructure projects.

The office, built by BAM in the North Lanarkshire town, reflects BAM’s holistic approach to building design, offering an agile working environment to colleagues intended to meet varying staff requirements and work styles, while also improving productivity and employee satisfaction. The new office facility has been complemented by a significant investment in improved parking facilities, including 34 new EV chargers, and a major upgrade to testing laboratories which will benefit the business’s ground engineering capability.

The 2,000 square-metre office provides space for collaboration and innovation to over 140 employees as they deliver some of BAM’s major UK civil engineering and construction projects. BAM’s engineering projects include work on behalf of SSE to create new converter stations, helping to transfer energy from offshore and remote wind generators to the National Grid as the UK’s energy network decarbonises. On the construction side of the business, the team is leading the development of critical community facilities from high-quality, sustainable education and healthcare premises including Dunfermline Learning Campus in Fife and a new £72m net-zero carbon health and social care facility in Parkhead, Glasgow.

In line with BAM’s mission to build a sustainable tomorrow, the Kilsyth office is built to high sustainability standards using modular construction techniques. Built offsite under factory conditions, modular construction has lowered the project’s environmental impact by reducing waste, energy usage and truck deliveries to site.

John Wilkinson, COO BAM UK & Ireland, said: ‘The team at our Kilsyth hub is playing a crucial role in delivering Scotland’s green energy transition as well as critical health and school facilities for local communities. This office provides our people with a fantastic base to do important and exciting work. It will allow us to contribute significantly to decarbonising the energy sector and aiding Scotland’s transition to net zero, which is something we can all be really proud of.’

BAM delivers major construction and civil engineering projects in the UK across a range of sectors. In Scotland, current projects include Cross Tay Link Road in Perth and Peebles High School. The firm has also previously constructed transformative office schemes like the Atlantic Square in Glasgow’s Financial Services District and one of Edinburgh’s largest office developments Capital Square.
