North Ayrshire Council appoints BAM’s Facilities Management team for three-year contract
North Ayrshire Council has appointed BAM FM – part of BAM Construct UK – for a three-year contract to maintain and repair heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
As part of this contract, BAM will be delivering 24/7/365 planned and reactive mobile maintenance service on HVAC equipment to over 200 sites in North Ayrshire, including on the Isles of Arran and Cumbrae. BAM FM will manage properties such as schools, libraries, community halls and sheltered housing.
North Ayrshire Council tendered the contract competitively and drew strong interest from the FM industry.
The appointment means further expansion of BAM’s mobile engineering team in Scotland, with the incoming TUPE transfer of three qualified HVAC engineers.
Rob Smith, Operations Director, BAM FM North, said:
‘We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious contract by North Ayrshire Council. This award combined with other recent wins is further evidence that BAM FM is fast becoming established as a significant presence in the Scottish FM sector.’
BAM FM was founded in Scotland [in 1998] and has its operational headquarters in Glasgow. It has expanded to cover a diverse range of sectors throughout the UK including education, commercial office, retail, shopping centres, healthcare and sports stadia.
In Scotland, BAM delivers FM services to sites up and down the country, from Aberdeen and Inverness in the North, to Dumfries and the Borders in the South.
The company’s turnover has grown organically from around £20m ten years ago to over £60m in 2019.
