Initiative follows trials carried out with specialist workplace consultant
Bam is introducing flexible working on its construction sites in a set of sweeping post-pandemic changes to its working practices which the firm has hailed as marking a “major mind-set change” for the industry.
The firm behind Sky’s £190m Elstree Studios is pushing through with initiatives such as rota working, staggered start and finish times, part-time work and remote working where possible.
BAM has been appointed by Legal & General, Sky and NBCUniversal to create Sky Studios; the most sustainable film and TV studio in the world. Set to open in 2022 just north of London, Sky Studios Elstree will house 13 sound stages and become home to a range of film and TV productions from Sky Studios and NBCUniversal, attracting £3bn of production spend over the first five years of operation alone.
The project will play a key role in delivering Sky’s ambitions to become net zero carbon by 2030 and aligns with Legal & General’s drive to deliver major ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) projects.
