City Building celebrates hat-trick of awards


CITY Building has been recognised for its people management practices by three different awards bodies.

The Glasgow building contractor recently picked up prizes for Diverse Social Enterprise of the Year, Public Sector Employer of the Year and a People Development Award.

City Building and Royal Strathclyde Blindcraft Industries (RSBi) won the Diverse Social Enterprise of the Year award at the Herald Diversity Awards, for promoting equality diversity and inclusion. RSBi – the manufacturing division of City Building – designs and manufactures furniture for major construction contracts. More than half of its 260 staff have a disability.

City Building also triumphed in the Public Sector Employer of the Year category at the Skills Development Scotland Scottish Apprenticeship Awards and collected a Glasgow Business Award for People Development. The firm has trained more than 1,110 apprentices since 2007.

Graham Paterson, executive director at City Building said, “To be recognised by three different awards bodies is a true triumph and a testament to our hardworking staff and apprentices.

“We take people development including training, diversity and equality extremely seriously across the business and the awards are a great chance for all of us at City Building to celebrate the excellent work being carried out by our company’s emerging talent.”
