Biosite selected as standardised Access Control for BAM Western
Following a stringent tender process, Bristol-based operation, BAM Western, has selected Biosite as its standardised access control system. With a team of 185 people and a supply chain of around 1,000 firms, BAM Construction’s £120m turnover Western region requires consistent systems to ensure secure and efficient operations across their sites.
Andrew Hilton, Commercial Contracts Manager, BAM Plant comments, ”BAM Plant is BAM’s dedicated Plant business and plays an essential role in almost all BAM projects. Our activities cover a wide range of mechanical and non-mechanical equipment, from site accommodation and communication links to electrical installation and fabrication services. BAM Plant had already supplied many BAM sites with Biosite and therefore we were confident in the breadth of functionality and service levels they could provide the Western region.” Read more.
