The Scottish Lime Centre Trust were for the second year running asked to attend the Engineering & Construction Showcase held at Angus College, an annual event showcasing the latest technology, careers and opportunities within the construction and engineering industries. The event gives potential learners and apprentices the opportunity to gain valuable careers and training advice from key names in industry.
This year's event attracted a record number of visitors with live demonstrations including demonstrations of stone cutting and carving by Scottish Lime Centre's Training Co-ordinator, Scott Mcaskill. The Scottish Lime Centre also provided information and advice for those interested in undertaking traditional building skills training and this years event saw a rise in adult skill seekers and contractors looking to gain heritage skills.
Angus College has been working recently to include traditional building skills within several of its core construction courses and last year several visits from Angus College students were made to the Scottish Lime Centre with students covering a range of activties related to traditional masonry repair and sash and case window repair techniques.
