He has played a key role in bringing together the entire civil engineering community in Scotland under unprecedented circumstances to defend our common interests.

“After 18 difficult months for everyone, I look forward to working with contractors and clients to ensure that we come out of the pandemic with the industry in a position that is stronger than ever and ready to meet the challenges of the future, in particular the transition to net zero. .

“I firmly believe that investing in infrastructure is the surest way to put Scotland on the path to an employment-oriented recovery to meet our social, environmental and economic priorities.”
