PlaceMakers have launched a new apprentice club (PAC) – aimed at giving better support to a growing force of carpentry apprentices through their path to qualifications.

“We aim to be there from start to finish, supporting apprentices all the way,” says PlaceMakers General Manager Bruce McEwen. “They are the future of the construction industry and we recognise that, so we want to back them.”

PlaceMakers have been supporting apprentices since 2013 through a scholarship scheme in association with the BCITO, but the recipients each year were limited.

The new club is all about giving better support to even more young carpentry apprentices, whether they’re just starting out, in the middle of their apprenticeship, or about to graduate.


Crew members will get access to a range of perks; like discounts and special offers, educational and networking opportunities, competitions, industry news and much more.
