Callan named 2017 Most Promising Trainee QS

24th February 2017

Farrans’ very own Callan Francis has been named ‘Most Promising Trainee Quantity Surveyor' at the CECA Scotland 2017 Awards which were held at the CECA Annual Dinner in the Hilton in Glasgow last night.

Callan, who has recently been based in the Scotland region for Farrans, attended the ceremony with a number of his colleagues. He was delighted to receive an award which carries such weight within the construction industry, with CECA Scotland currently representing more than 100 civil engineering contractors.

“I am proud and overwhelmed to receive this award,” Callan said. “I would like to thank all those who have supported me in my development over the past two and a half years”.

And it has been within that relatively short period of time that Callan has made such a valuable impact at Farrans. He has been involved in various projects to date, including the New Forth Crossing project and Grudie Hydro Scheme in the Scottish Highlands.

On such projects, Callan has demonstrated all the traits which make him a worthy winner, as Farrans Commercial Director, Sean Bradley, was keen to highlight.

“Callan has been recognised not just for his hard work, but for his enthusiastic attention to detail,” Sean said. “He has beaten off tough competition from all over the UK in winning this award.”

“Callan is a credit to Farrans and an excellent role model to all the young surveyors within Farrans’ Commercial team”.

Celebrations over and trophy under arm, Callan will now turn his sights back to the day job, with work pressing ahead at Bad a Cheo Windfarm in Caithness.
