Campbell Evans

In addition to his current role as SHEQ compliance & sustainability manager for the business, Campbell will be tasked with reinforcing the company’s continued drive towards its net zero ambitions and protecting the environment.

It follows the recent announcement that the company is using green biofuel to replace diesel use in its road haulage fleet, and with plans to roll out the biofuel to its wider fleet of plant in the future, this will result in a massive reduction in carbon emissions.

Campbell has more than 14 years of experience in the construction industry monitoring quality control, environmental and health & safety compliance. He joined Advance in 2018 and, with the support of the company, attended university achieving a First-Class Honours Degree in Occupational Safety & Health (BSc). Campbell is a chartered member of both the Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) and the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA).

Seamus Shields, managing director of Advance Construction (Scotland) Limited, said: “This is a critical role within the business and Campbell has been key to ensuring sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. We have always been committed to reusing materials where possible, and to using our local supply chain, however we are increasing our efforts to contribute towards Net Zero goals and are always looking for new ways to innovate and re-use to get us there.

“As one of Scotland’s largest civil engineering businesses, the Advance Construction Group is committed to being at the forefront of the Green Revolution, delivering sustainability through all of our construction activities covering Groundworks/Civil Engineering, Haulage, Specialist Concrete Flooring, Structural Sealants, Land Regeneration and Multi-utilities. As a business we strongly believe in our social responsibility to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to help meet the current 2050 Net Zero target.”

Campbell added: “As well as striving towards our own Net Zero goals we want to lead the way in reducing carbon emissions within the construction industry. As part of this journey, we are in the process of completing ESOS Phase 3 Assessment, ensuring we have recorded our carbon emissions as part of the Streamline Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR) by December 2023.”
