Work has begun on an exciting new environmentally-friendly hub at West Lothian College.
Pre-apprenticeship plumbing students witnessed the breaking of ground on the site of the college’s new ECOHOUSE development.
The ECOHOUSE skills centre for sustainable living will comprise two semi-detached houses built at the entrance to the college’s Livingston campus.
The build will be complete by summer 2023 and training delivered in the skills centre will help the move towards a net zero carbon economy in West Lothian.
Breaking ground were leader of West Lothian Council Lawrence Fitzpatrick and chair of West Lothian College Alex Linkston.
Councillor Fitzpatrick said: “We are delighted to support West Lothian College’s ECOHOUSE project with £493,436 from the Place Based Investment Programme.
“The green economy is only going to grow in the future, and it’s vital we give our young people the skills they need to secure good jobs in this developing area.”
