BAM Ritchies is the ground engineering division of BAM Nuttall. We provide fully integrated services for a wide range of customers– both public and private sector, from small local projects to national critical infrastructure.

Over 60 years, we’ve built a reputation as the go-to ground engineering team for complex problem solving and best-value, sustainable delivery – with no surprises.

Whether we’re testing earthwork or blasting rock, we use industry-leading digital construction methods to build before we build. So you’ll know exactly what to expect from your project, and we’ll get it right first time.

Rock Drill & Blast

The UK’s largest drill and blaster, we’re responsible for over 40% of the UK’s contracts. Proven expertise in quarries, borrow pit creation, pyrotechnics, underwater blasting and civil blasting.

Complex Piling

We deliver all complexities of piling, from access restricted work to rock socketed piles. Using a strict early engagement method, we ensure you get the best-value outcome – however intricate the work.

Material Testing

The only UKAS accredited geotechnical division, we have unique permission to test earthwork and materials in the UK. This means we can run UKAS accredited labs anytime, anywhere in the country.

Grouting Operations

We take the guess work out of grouting with a digital-first approach. Proven success in contracts of all scales, from old mine treatment and compaction grouting, to specialist high penetration work.

Ground Investigation

One of the UK’s largest ground investigation contractors, we’ve developed a digital data collection system to streamline our work. Our method gives you faster, clearer, more accurate results.

Concrete Repairs

We provide a fully integrated service for surface and underground projects, both robot and hand controlled. Extensive experience in sprayed concrete, wet or dry solutions and structural grouting.

Ground Anchors

An award-winning ground anchor contractor, we engineer temporary and permanent anchoring solutions. We tie back retaining walls, strengthen foundations, stabilise slopes – and so much more.
Soil Nails and Catch Fences
We design and construct solutions to stabilise soil slopes, rock slopes and embankments. Working on both new and existing slopes, we create soil nails and catch fences that stand the test of time.


With 60 years’ experience in ground engineering, we know how to succeed in the most regulated environments. And we’re proud to uphold accreditation standards in a wide range of geotechnical disciplines.

Above all, our people are our biggest asset. That’s why we offer ongoing personal development for the whole team. So we can collaborate at all levels to deliver the BAM Ritchies service you expect.
