City Building is a highly successful and evolving business which has a proven track record of strategic delivery within the commercial marketplace.
Now one of Scotland’s largest construction companies, City Building was established on 6 October 2006 from the former Building Services of Glasgow City Council to provide a range of repairs and maintenance, construction and refurbishment services across the public, private and third sectors. They have delivered more than £50m in cash surplus over the last 10 years, which was returned to Glasgow City Council for investment in frontline services.
The company has recently been recognised as one of the top 90 businesses in Scotland for employment and diversity and with a turnover circa £200 million, with their business in the top 100 construction companies in the UK.
Their achievements over the years, particularly in the areas of sustainability and employment culminated in the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise: Sustainable Development. In addition, this year they have achieved quality, environmental and health and safety accreditations ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 and Investors in Young People Gold Award as well as EFQM Recognised for Excellence 4 Star.
Their award-winning training academies are the most successful apprentice-training academies in Scotland, with 324 directly-employed apprentices learning vital trade and life skills.
They also operate Royal Strathclyde Blindcraft Industries (RSBi), one of the largest supported manufacturing businesses in Europe. RSBi employs over 250 people, more than 50% of whom have a disability, including HM Forces veterans from recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
