Transforming used pallets into garden furniture

Ruth Beavers 19 Dec 2016
Although every effort is made to return or reuse pallets on our construction sites, almost all material deliveries rely on them, so they can often build up on sites. At our Materials Innovation Factory project at the University of Liverpool, the team decided to upcycle them into furniture!

Community first

My experience of the Circular Building

Emily Fanning 06 Oct 2016

Before going into my third year at university, I spent time learning about what BAM’s Design and Sustainability divisions do. I was lucky that my visit coincided with London Design Week, where BAM was involved with the Circular Building exhibition – a temporary structure that aims to show visitors how to adopt a more circular approach to how they live and work.


World Environment Day 2016

Hanna Hayward 28 Jul 2016

This year's theme for World Environment Day was ‘Go Wild for Life’, which focussed on wildlife crime and endangered species. While we don’t have any rhinos, sea turtles, tigers or elephants on our sites, we do have the opportunity to support the species living in our own local environments.


Experiencing more than photocopying

Philippa Murray 18 Jul 2016

Before doing my work experience placement at BAM I would have said that construction is mainly for men and that there are limited jobs within the industry - the main ones being architects, project managers and brick layers. However, after doing my placement I now know there are men and women doing a range of jobs.
