Greig MacLeod added, “The Scottish Building Federation is a fantastic organisation that serves the interests of the sector across Scotland and I am delighted to have been chosen as the new president. There critical areas where the building sector has a key role to play, be that tackling climate change, providing apprenticeships  making sure we build enough homes for people to live in and helping the economy recover after Covid-19.
