BAM Construction has appointed Mark Nicol as its new commercial director
Mark Nicol, who comes from West Lothian, is celebrating his 30th year in the construction sector, having commenced with the business as a trainee surveyor.
Nicol has worked in surveying and latterly commercial management for BAM across several sectors including the company’s extensive projects in education, retail, healthcare and commercial developments, including spending time on many sites as well as working on pre-construction and bid submissions.
Overcoming testing times
Mark Nicol said: “It is one of the more challenging times to take up the role in this always challenging sector, but I am quietly optimistic that the company will emerge from it strongly as we have from many other testing economic times.
“Our work has always been driven by our high quality and consistent standards, backed up by treating people well and having a modern technical approach combined with strong ethics.”
BAM also has a sister company, BAM Nuttall, which is known for its infrastructure schemes such as the Network Rail renewal and enhancement programme in Scotland, plus its own design, engineering and facilities businesses.
BAM Construction in Scotland is led by Bruce Dickson, who also sits on the Construction Leadership Forum and the Construction Scotland ILG. Dickson, added: “The Covid-19 pandemic has put further pressure on a sector which already operates on tight margins and in a highly competitive market.
“That’s why outstanding financial management is so important to us, and I’m delighted to appoint Mark to this new role.”
