West Lothian Construction Forum

Archie Meikle, Managing Director of Ashwood Scotland recently agreed to initiate and Chair a West Lothian Construction Forum with the aim of improving collaboration across the sector, encourage school leavers to join the industry, improve training and skills, increase supply chain opportunities and support sustainability & environmental goals.

Archie will Chair the Construction Forum which will consist of four sub-committees:

  1. Education – school engagement from primary to secondary
  2. Employability and Training – developing a pathway into construction, encouraging employers to recruit a young workforce, upskilling and transferable skills.
  3. Construction and Local Economy – promoting collaboration and opportunities for local businesses
  4. Sustainability and Environmental – supporting companies to achieve carbon reduction objectives and fair work practices.

Archie Meikle commented “Having worked in construction for nearly forty-five years and being deeply passionate about both the industry and the local West Lothian economy, I, therefore feel it an honour and privilege to have been asked to take on this role.”

The Construction Forum will be instrumental in shaping the future opportunities the industry has to offer in both the professional and trade disciplines and also a closer collaboration between West Lothian based construction related organisations.
