New project alongside BAM

BAM Construction’s Western team has been engaged by the EFA as the construction partner to create the proposed new £21 million building for Great Western Academy (GWA) in Swindon.

The three-storey secondary teaching and learning school will provide for 1210 pupils.  The building will provide study and teaching facilities for the delivery of a full secondary and post-16 curriculum with a major focus on business, enterprise and technology. The proposal requires approval from the local planning authority and BAM is co-hosting a public consultation on Wednesday 20 July. BAM recently delivered the highly regarded Swindon UTC.

Kempowell are proud to be doing the electrical installation for this exciting new development, after working alongside BAM over the years.


BAM been building in the UK since 1874. Offices, schools, hospitals, university departments, hotels, research labs, cultural venues, museums, travel hubs… from the iconic to the purely functional.

Over the years, BAM have had successful regional construction companies joined forces into one. However still focused on delivering locally: They like to stay close to our customers, so we understand their issues and environment. That’s why we have a network of offices covering England, Scotland and Wales.

They say “Our industry is going through massive change and upheaval: most of it for the better, as construction becomes more focused on the users of buildings and on long-term sustainability and cost-effectiveness”.


We will make sure we keep you updated with the progress!
