Presentation wins Coatbridge firm after industry award


An employee of a Coatbridge construction company celebrated after winning a prestigious award at the end of this year’s Build Lanarkshire business development initiative.

Alanna Maxwell, of Building Finishing Services, took home the award after giving a much-loved online presentation to members of the Hub South West Partnership, which included staff from North and South Lanarkshire Councils and top construction companies.

The presentations and judgments took place at the end of the Fourth Build Lanarkshire program, which saw 10 companies from across the county learn how to win jobs from the public sector and major contractors.

The program was also an opportunity for them to benefit from expert sessions on business issues such as strategy, management, tendering, marketing and cybersecurity.
