BAM Nuttall gain a place on the Northern Powerhouse Programme.
The construction company BAM Nuttall have recently become partners with the Government’s Northern Powerhouse Programme which facilitates the collaboration of various different sectors, businesses, and companies to bolster growth in the North of England.
The incorporation of BAM Nuttall into this programme will formalise it’s contributions to the North of England which have lately included projects such as the construction of smart motorways on the M62 and M1, the improvement of railway links along the TransPennine route, West of Leeds, and at Manchester Victoria Station, and Leeds City Council’s Public Transport Investment Programme.
The Divisional Director at BAM Nuttall for North England and Scotland, Gareth Farrier stated: “I can speak on behalf of all our teams, when I say we’re most excited by the opportunity this partnership brings to offer local people opportunities across a wide range of careers, including construction, engineering and business support roles.
“From apprentices to industry experts, safety managers and digital modellers, we encourage BAM people to develop their skills and experience – harnessing the home grown talent the region has to offer. As these projects grow, so do the opportunities to recruit new people to join our teams.
“Like myself, BAM people feel a huge amount of pride and satisfaction being involved in developing and delivering sustainable solutions that are enhancing the lives of people living and working in their own communities.”
The Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, Rt Hon Jake Berry MP added: “I am excited to announce that BAM Nuttall, one of Europe’s largest contractors, are joining our ever-growing network of over 300 Northern Powerhouse Partners.
“BAM’s reputation for delivering modern infrastructure with exceptional engineering complements the Government’s £3.4Bn investment from the Local Growth Fund to create a rapidly connected modern transport network fit for the 21st century.
“I look forward to working with BAM as they support our vision to level up Northern regions and prepare to seize all of the economic opportunities that come with the UK’s departure from the European Union.”
