Exclusive: Bam Construct creates new role for rail

Bam Construct has created a new role for rail as it looks to take advantage of non-trackside contracts with key clients including Network Rail.

Adrian Padley, who joined Bam in 2002, has been appointed as the new rail sector director for Bam Construct.

The contractor is working on Network Rail projects including building a 13,600 sq m rail operating centre at its Basingstoke campus, which will act as a signalling control centre for the Wessex region.

Mr Padley, who is based in the company’s sector director office at Thorpe Park in Leeds, has previously led bids for Bam including its Yorkshire priority schools and its Ministry of Defence National Capital Works framework submissions.

He said: “The post reflects the growing significance of this sector to us and our prominence and success in it.

“We are currently working on several [rail projects] and have tendered other projects within the sector that we feel hopeful about which, if successful, will further strengthen our credentials and capabilities.

“Bam Nuttall already has a solid reputation within the rail sector and an established strong relationship with Network Rail on trackside and heavy civil operations.

“My aim is to grow Bam Construction’s presence and relationships with rail clients for non-trackside operations.”
