Cruden Building has donated £500 to St Blane’s Primary School in Blantyre as part of their commitment to investing in the local community.
The Glasgow based firm are currently building 20 new family homes on the site of the former St. Blane’s School. The properties are a mixture two, three and four-bedroom semi-detached houses and one and two-bedroom cottage flats. All dwellings are designed to meet the latest standards in energy efficiency and are due to be completed by February 2019.
Throughout the St Blane’s project and current South Lanarkshire Council projects, Cruden is providing employment opportunities to local people and five local apprentices are working at this development, as they train to become bricklayers, joiners and plumbers. Cruden are also creating a number of work placements, as well as modern apprenticeship and training opportunities for young people, reinforcing their commitment to nurture Scotland’s young talent within the construction industry.
The donation was welcomed by the school. Pauline Brown, Head Teacher said: “We are thankful to Cruden for this donation which will go towards our school garden. We are also looking forward to the minor repair work that Cruden plan to carry out in our garden area”.
Allan Callaghan, Managing Director of Cruden Building said: “We are pleased to be able to make a difference to the local communities in which we build. This donation is particularly fitting as it reinforces our ongoing commitment to support Scotland’s young workforce”.
In addition to St Blane’s, Cruden are developing five sites throughout South Lanarkshire, building 118 new homes in the Hamilton, East Kilbride and Clydesdale areas
