Friends, families, companies and colleges can put forward a very special individual or firm for the Daily Mirror Hero of Construction Award or nominate outstanding trainees for the Apprentice of the Year Award.

Phil Ford, CITB strategic partnerships director for Scotland, said: “The Pride of Construction Awards is an excellent way to recognise and reward those making a difference in our industry and I would encourage individuals and firms to nominate and celebrate the talent we have here in Scotland.”

Previous Scottish winners include, Shetland based apprentice Christopher Smith, who won the UK Outstanding Apprentice of the Year award in 2014.

On winning the award Christopher said: “I’m proud to have received this award.
