Glasgow pupils win UK-wide construction mural competition

PUPILS from a Glasgow secondary school have won a UK-wide art competition organised by the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).

BAM Construction’s Atlantic Square project team invited second and third year pupils to design a mural for the Ivor Goodsite Competition based on the theme of BAM’s 150th Anniversary, which is being celebrated this year.

The winning entry was designed by pupils from Lourdes Secondary in Glasgow’s south side. The design will be displayed on the Atlantic Square site hoarding and be included within a special UK brochure. The pupils will receive a trophy and medals, with BAM adding a £150 Amazon voucher.

Zeshan Afzal, BAM Construction’s site manager said, “We are delighted for the pupils who put in a great deal of time and effort into all the designs they produced but I think everyone would agree that this one really stood out.”

Ivor Goodsite is the UK construction industry mascot, designed to highlight the dangers of live sites as well as the career opportunities available within the industry. A contribution from the entry fee will be donated to the Child Accident Prevention Trust.
