BAM announces changes to Construction segment operating regions

BAM UK & Ireland has today announced a realignment of the operating regions for it’s Construction segment in England.

The changes will see the business reduce the number of operating regions from seven to five, with the key changes being the combining of the North West and North East regions to create a new Northern Region; and the South East region being merged across the London, Western and Midlands regions, with the latter being renamed Central region.

James Wimpenny, Executive Director Construction, BAM UK & Ireland, said:

‘Like most companies we are constantly reviewing our structure and how we operate in line with best practice and market conditions. As a result, we have announced today that we are reducing the number of regions within BAM UK & Ireland’s Construction segment from seven to five.

‘The changes will start to take effect from today and will see our North West and North East regions combine into one Northern region which will be led by John Phillips, and our South East region will be merged across our London, Western and Midlands regions. The Midlands region will be renamed Central region and be led by Adam Harding. Our Scotland region is unaffected by the changes.

‘Unfortunately there will be a small number of redundancies, but where possible we are seeking alternative internal roles.

‘This has been a considered decision, but the vast majority of what our people do, right across our business and for our clients and customers every day, will not change.’
