Pacific Building figurehead Brian Gallacher has been honoured by the Charted Institute of Building who have presented him with their Open Award.
The company Chairman received the citation at a glittering ceremony at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on Friday, September 15, 2023.
The CIOB decided to honour Pacific’s former Managing Director as “an eminent person, associated with and highly respected in the Building and Construction Industry who is deemed to have made a major contribution to the industry and goes above their contribution directly to CIOB”.
The organisation’s Chief Executive Officer Caroline Gumble handed over the award and said: “We are also recognising your personal support and commitment to partnering with the CIOB as a Chartered Building Company and Training Partner and for your unwavering support of professional qualifications – plus being involved in the community.”
Brian has been a construction professional and Chartered Builder for over 25 years, becoming a Fellow of the institute in 2002.
He has held senior management positions in the Scottish construction sector since the early 1990s and – to satisfy his burning professional and personal ambitions – he formed Pacific Building in 2005.
Not surprisingly, the company quickly grew into a £22million business with specialities in the hospitality, leisure, travel and food sectors – and it has subsequently become Employee Owned, enjoying an excellent reputation across the industry.
Pacific Building has been a Chartered construction business and training partner of the CIOB since its inception – and the CIOB have regularly expressed their appreciation for Brian’s support and insight.
