Who we are

CECA Scotland is the sole trade body for Scotland’s civil engineering contractors.

We are proud to represent around 80% of the industry.  Our members work every day to drive Scotland’s economic growth, working across the roads, rail, water and power sectors and delivering the vital infrastructure businesses and communities in Scotland rely on – the building bricks of our future.

CECA Scotland are one of the cornerstones of the construction industry in Scotland, and their industry knowledge, along with the support offered to all member’s large or small is vital in these challenging times

Lotus AherneBusiness Development Manager, Interserve

We became CECA Scotland’s first member in Scotland in 1996 and we still strongly support their work today. Throughout that period, CECA has been a strong and relevant voice which has represented contractors very effectively, while working with all parties for the greater good of the construction industry. We applaud their record of success and look forward to working with them in future.

George Leslie Ltd values the engagement which CECA Scotland undertakes in promoting both the views and interests of the civil engineering contracting industry across government and major client organisations throughout Scotland and also benefits from the wide-ranging training, support and advisory services which CECA offers their member organisations

John McNaughtManaging Director, George Leslie Ltd

Sometimes it can be difficult for the voice of smaller contractors to be heard at local or Scottish Government level or with some of the lager civil engineering clients such as the Utility Companies. This can be simply due to scale but can also be due to contractors being nervous of publicly criticising or challenging a large client. CECA Scotland has done a fantastic job of bridging this gap with skill and care. They have also helped link us up to fellow contractors who may be suffering with or have already overcome a shared issue. We are proud to be members of CECA and would encourage any civil engineering contractor, irrespective of their size, to join.

Hugh CraigieJoint Managing Director, CHAP Group

"We live in a fast paced and ever changing environment and being a member of CECA Scotland allows us to keep touch with all the latest industry regulation changes; our membership allows us to prepare and respond to global and national trends like digitalisation and sustainability. Morrison Construction have found that being a part of CECA Scotland allows us to have a strong and consistent voice across the Infrastructure sector which is valued amongst clients and contractors alike.”
