THE efforts of apprentices from one of Scotland’s largest construction firms have been recognised at this year’s South Lanarkshire College Construction Awards.
Seven apprentices from City Building – Glasgow City Council’s arms-length construction firm – scooped individual awards and medals for outstanding work in advanced craft.

Awards are presented for excellence in course work and for participation in local, regional and national construction competitions. With over 450 apprentices, City Building runs the largest apprentice centre in Scotland which includes Scotland’s first ‘renewables apprenticeships’ scheme.
