There are many different grades of membership in the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), depending on qualifications and where someone is in their career, but here are none higher than being a Fellow.
This prestigious grade is available to those who have at least five years of senior level industry experience. It is with great pleasure to announce that two members of the CCG family have now achieved this accolade: Gary Weir, CCG Technical Manager, and John Baggley, CCG Contracts Manager.
Gary Weir has been with CCG for 12 years first operating as a Site Manager and then working his way up to a Projects Manager role, he successfully delivered projects such as Blochairn Place, a 102 home project in North Glasgow that went on to win him a Silver Medal from the CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards (CMYA). Gary’s technical expertise is well suited to his new role as Technical Manager providing input into CCG tenders, pre-contract operations, construction and business improvement.
John first started with CCG as an Apprentice Joiner in 1996. After serving his apprenticeship, John left the company only to return in 2008 as a General Foreman reaching his Contracts Manager role in 2015. John was awarded a GOLD CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Award (CMYA) for Pearce Street, a residential housing development completed in 2011, and was also CCG’s sole construction manager for the hugely successful Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village where he successfully delivered 237 homes within a 15 month programme.
CCG Chairman and CEO, Alastair Wylie, said: “It’s appropriate for me to make special mention of the achievement gained by both our colleagues John Baggley and Gary Weir who have successfully been awarded the status of “Fellow” by the Chartered Institute of Building.
This award is by no means easily obtained therefore it is reflective of the high esteem that both Gary and John are recognised within our industry.
I’m sure you’ll all join with me in wishing the boys sincere congratulations in receiving this honour.”
