BAM Construction appoints Tim Chell as regional director
Tim Chell is to head up BAM Construction’s Western region.
Beginning his construction career as an engineer in the late 1980s, Tim spent three years working in the USA. He joined BAM in 2004, leading the construction of four schools for Bristol City Council.
In 2006 he was appointed as one of its construction directors and took over the management of its Cardiff office. He is a chartered environmentalist and has a Master’s degree in project management in construction.
Mr Chell now leads a team of 185 people, a supply chain of around 1000 and a company with a turnover in excess of £100 million.
He said: “The construction industry faces many challenges. The foremost challenge is creating trust with our clients and supply chain as we ourselves change and develop. We’ve achieved this so far by creating quality relationships as a result of our progressive and non-contractual manner. This makes us good partners and problem solvers for both the public and private sectors.”
“And we must develop our young people and attract new people into this profession to bridge the skills gap. When I began, there were times when I was working out of a phone booth and the back of a car. Thankfully modern technology has transformed our industry and we offer young people a high tech and varied career environment far more suited to their skill sets.”
Tim Chell takes up his position from 1st November. He replaces Nick Goff, who is retiring.
