Royal BAM Group nv (Dutch: Koninklijke BAM Groep nv) is a Dutch construction-services business with headquarters in Bunnik, Netherlands. It is the largest construction company based on revenue in the Netherlands.[2]

In July 2020, Royal BAM announced it was winding down its 600-strong BAM International business, blaming the COVID-19 pandemic for mounting losses.[7] Up to 150 jobs would also be cut at BAM Construct UK.[8]
