A life of demolition

 

By Mike Travers

 

Jim Caldwell of Glasgow company JCJ Demolition and Construction Ltd has been given a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The accolade from the National Federation of Demolition Contractors acknowledges his “outstanding and ongoing commitment” to improving training and ensuring workers are competent and safe.

A federation spokesman said: “Jim has tirelessly driven for improvements in asbestos training standards, attending numerous Asbestos Liaison Group meetings. He has developed a Demolition Specialist apprenticeship programme and been instrumental in developing a Demolition Specialist up-skilling programme. A well-deserved award to a very well respected man.”

The NFDC achievement is the second time in recent months that Caldwell has been recognised for his work; in November he was awarded a Fellowship of the Institute of Demolition Engineers  at the AGM in London.

JCJ was formed in 1991 as a family-run business and is a founder member of the National Demolition Training Group (Scotland).

Another NFDC winner from Scotland was Norrie Grant of Bonnybridge firm Central Demolition who took the Demolition Supervisor award.
