The Board of the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (Scotland) met on Wednesday in the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium, Inverness. Following the Meeting they were joined by representatives of a number of Highland contractors including Global Construction (Scotland) Ltd, HQC Ltd, MacLean-Ardgay Ltd, Mansefield Construction Ltd, Morrison Construction, Pat Munro (Alness) Ltd, Rok Civil Engineering Ltd, Ross-shire Engineering Ltd, D & I Rutherford (Dornoch) Ltd, Turriff Contractors Ltd, and UBC Group Ltd, to mark the handover of Chairmanship.
Speaking at the handover, outgoing CECA (Scotland) Chairman Charlie Frize, said:
“I have enjoyed my time in the Chair despite the huge challenges of an economy in recession, and I felt that it was fitting that the handover should be in the Highland capital where many of CECA’s most loyal members operate.”
The incoming CECA (Scotland) Chairman, Alan Carr, responded by thanking Charlie for his excellent tenure, and said:
“I look forward to guiding Scotland’s civil engineers through the tough times currently afflicting the public sector particularly the Scottish Government and local authorities, including Highland Council.”
“Our top priorities over the coming year will be to try and bring some stability to public sector spending in the current period of economic doubt, to alleviate the unreasonable pre-qualification burden that falls on contractors, and to restore confidence in the market.”
