The company has renewed its commitment to investing in young people’s futures with the hire of Euan Meikle.

He is currently studying building services engineering at Glasgow Caledonian University and is due to graduate this summer.

He joins a team which believes that green solutions don’t have to cost the earth.

Viridis, based at Falkirk Business Hub in Vicar Street, is committed to training and educating the next generation of net-zero design engineers to nurture talent from the beginning of their career to create a greener, more sustainable future as well as help bridge the skills gap.

It also employs a team with a wide range of backgrounds to ensure that sustainability and low-energy solutions are at the heart of its designs – rather than just an add on.

Euan said: “When deciding my career path, I knew engineering was the route I wanted to take as I really enjoy both logical and lateral thinking – appealing to my creative and pragmatic side. Having the ability to design in a modern way that creates change is something I feel strongly about.

“It’s great to be surrounded by knowledgeable and experienced colleagues - I’m learning so much from them.”

Lee Marshall, managing director, said: “We are always looking for diverse talent who can bring new ideas and thought processes to the team.

“Having Euan join the company is a breath of fresh air. He’s settled into the team really well, and we’re looking forward to having him in full time once he completes his studies."
