BAM Regional Director Steve Byrne

The Southfield Street firm has been involved with several BAM projects including the delivery of a new Ambulance and Fire Services Resource centre in Wrexham currently under construction, and the stunning £100 million football academy for Manchester City.

Harry Clayton, Managing Director, said: “We are thrilled that our continuing efforts to excel in all aspects of health, safety and environmental performance have been recognised by such a valued client.

“These standards could of course not be achieved without the full cooperation of our experienced and pro-active site managers and workforce.”

BAM Regional Director Steve Byrne said: “BAM are behind some of the UK’s most impressive and cutting edge buildings.

“How we work with our partners is extremely important to delivering the quality that our clients have come to expect.

“That’s why we like to recognise exceptional performance, and there can be no more important aspect to construction than its safety.

“The gold award for Keith Walton Brickwork not only reflects their attitude and outlook, but also, it reflects a responsible approach to the environment.”
