The ECITB is supporting Stuart in order to send him to the event and highlight the skills required to work within the engineering and construction industry.

He has shown his abilities are deserving of this opportunity. The ECITB wishes him all the best for the competition and we will be paying close attention to all of his future endeavours.”
