As director of business development, Mr Cotton will be responsible for strengthening relationships with clients and will also co-ordinate regional business development managers. He was previously BAM’s sector development director, and before that was a business development manager.
Mr Magdani was previously BAM’s head of sustainable design. He will be responsible for developing BAM’s sustainability expertise in every aspect of designing, constructing, managing and maintaining buildings and for developing a consultancy service to clients.
He joined BAM in 2011 from architectural practice Aukett Fitzroy Robinson for whom he was the lead architect on Marks & Spencer’s new flagship store at Cheshire Oaks.
Their promotions, effective January 2013, follow the appointment of Andrew Pryke as managing director of design last month.
BAM Construct UK chief executive Graham Cash said: “It is important for any business to recognise and encourage talent and ability. There is a lot of it in BAM and these appointments show the depth of experience and expertise we can offer customers. They also show that we are developing what our business can do in sustainability, design, technology and in developing new markets. This will improve what we offer our clients and the quality of our integrated business from project initiation through to design, construction and managing completed buildings.”
