The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has launched a new hub for members in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

It is being launched virtually today (14 October), with contributions from John MacLennan of the Scottish Construction Innovation Centre, Caroline Gumble, the CIOB’s CEO, LDN Architects’ Stuart MacKellar, currently involved in the restoration of Inverness Castle, and hub committee member Sharon Barrie of the Highland Council.

The CIOB has more than 2,400 members based in Scotland and Gumble’s last in-person visit before lockdown was in Scotland, talking to members about refocussing the support offered to them, to further support, involve and represent members and the wider construction community in the Highland and Islands.

The new hub, officially open as of 1 January 2021, will run a series of events to establish the network, welcome new members and discuss issues of specific interest to the construction and built environment community in the Highlands and Islands.

If you work in construction and would like to get involved with the CIOB’s new hub, please contact regional manager Lynne McKay: [email protected]
