BAM Construction Ltd is the latest company to register. Project Manager Ian French of BAM said: “When we heard about Never Mind the Business we wanted to lend our support. It’s great for us. By taking part we can have a really enjoyable evening and help support Mencap’s fantastic work in Birmingham at the same time.”

BAM have been involved in the construction of five of the ten buildings in Brindleyplace and are approaching the last stages of the final phase of the Estate; the 107,000sq ft office building Eleven Brindleyplace for Argent, one of the sponsors of Never Mind the Business.

It will be interesting to see which sector comes out top! More and more teams are signing up so please register as soon as possible so you do not miss your chance.”
