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.
