Lagan Construction Group among latest #loveLIVES campaign supporters

Lagan Construction Group has become the latest contractor to pledge its support to #loveLIVES.

The group has backed the campaign, which has now reached a total of £220,000 with three weeks left to run.

Lagan Construction Group chief executive Colin Loughran said: “At Lagan Construction Group we believe that our people are our greatest asset. 

“We invest heavily in people development and are delighted to back the #loveLIVES campaign as a significant investment for the future. 

“We sincerely hope that the target is reached in this campaign for the good of our industry.”

Four of the six biggest contractors operating in the UK have now each pledged £20,000 to the campaign, with Interserve, Kier, Laing O’Rourke and Morgan Sindall also supporters of #loveLIVES.

Other firms to have pledged include Canary Wharf Contractors Group, Lakehouse, Mouchel and NG Bailey, as contractors have rallied behind the #loveLIVES cause.

Smaller firms and individuals have also pledged their support, including SCS Group.

SCS marketing manager Ross Farmer said: “We’re in specialist building services – BEMS, smoke control, ventilation – and these are hands-on fields where project management is something that has to be learned on the job, in addition to the academic skills it takes to design a system.

“Several of our top team here at SCS Group started out as apprentices, and we have them coming through all the time; at the moment one director, one senior project manager and a number of project managers started here as apprentices, and we have three or four more in training right now.”
