BHM was founded in 1984 by a group of Bahamian businessmen who remain on the Board of the Company to this day; all the original founders have a construction background.
As well as the Company operating very successfully and diversifying over the years, their Board has also expanded their own success outside the construction industry in such sectors as shipping, mining, real estate and retail. They have used this wider experience to help support the executive management of BHM to grow a quality business.
This success has led to the aspiration by the Board and the management team to see the Company grow and seek new and exciting challenges in the vertical construction sector as well as new challenges within their existing Infrastructure works both in the Bahamas and the wider Caribbean. The Board has also approved that the company should extend their road construction, civil engineering and earthworks into selected countries in Africa.
From a strong background in the Bahamas as a major civil engineering contractor, their Company fully understands the steps that have to be taken to gain the trust of their new clients and how to deliver successful projects that are immediately recognized for their quality, durability and technical excellence.
Their vision is to develop a sustainable business focused on local and personalised service backed by world-class leadership and technical delivery for airports, sea ports and trunk roads in growing economies.
-Delivering world-class technical standards
-Being recognised for a personalised and responsive service without bureaucratic internal barriers
-Developing local skills and talent to contribute to the broader economic stability
-At all times acting to the highest ethical standards without compromise.
They are proud to be a part of developing sustainable and growing economies by building major infrastructure; they are particularly proud of their track record of developing their people who can go on to work in their home countries and for BHM for many years to come.
Their Company was founded by and is still owned by men of the highest integrity; it has been this strong leadership from the top that has enabled them to build consistent and deeply embedded behaviours at all levels in the Company. .
In their own words, their Board would rather they do one project to an excellent standard, than focus on growing turnover at the expense of quality and a personal standard of service. This is at the heart of what they do; they are not driven by stock market demands - they are driven by quality relationships with all their customers.
Their people are very loyal to the Company because the Company shows equal loyalty; everyone matters and if their employees stay for more than one year, they rarely leave. Their Company is a place they hope people aspire to be a part of for all their working lives
Their core values are:
• Respect No matter what the position of a person they truly respect them for who they are.
• Positivity In their organisation the answer is always “YES” - they can do this. They will find a way.
• Honesty If tehy can’t do business honestly they would rather not do it at all.
• Integrity They have modesty, resilience and reliability and put the success of the team ahead of the individual.
When they recruit people they look particularly for this value alignment; they can then train their people in the skills needed for a particular role. They believe it has been this approach that has led to the successful delivery of so many iconic projects and most importantly, excellent client relationships.
