Paradigm Landscapes grow by Acquisition

As the most recent business to emerge from within the Tigers Group, Paradigm Landscapes operate from that same space of being commercially minded with explicit social purpose.

In this, our first year of trading, we have focused on creating three main themes for our business to focus on in terms of work delivery. Those have been commercial, residential and social with projects under each work classification completed to the highest of standards and on every occasion to our partners/customers satisfaction.

Alongside that development of operational delivery, we have embraced our social promise to ensure that we will always employ – on a full time basis – a minimum of 25% of our workforce from a justice background. Creating opportunities for those with lived experience of justice is at the heart of our working ethos.

Our business has been welcomed by partners across the West of Scotland and with the appointment of new Managing Director Brian Carmichael in recent weeks – who joins with extensive construction sector experience – we are certain those delivery themes will be expanded, and further innovative growth will follow.

And it is with growth in mind that we are today excited to make an announcement on a recently completed deal which will see our Residential teams busy throughout 2023.

It is with great pride and delight that Paradigm Landscapes can confirm the successful acquisition of the order book of Desirable Paving and Driveways Ltd – a family business and company of some 20 years standing in the landscaping sector, based on the south side of Glasgow – with work on several projects already underway.

The deal to take over the workbook helped the owner of Desirable, Ronnie Shepherd to take a step towards retirement and everyone at Tigers and Paradigm wish both Ronnie and his wife Mairi all the very best for their, what we hope will be, relaxing future together.

With several projects already underway we look forward to sharing some of the transformational – before and after – images, of those projects to be completed across Glasgow, on our website

Let’s start a new project together.

Joining forces with Morgan Sindall Construction to improve training

New joint venture to address challenges in the construction sector

Having partnered with Morgan Sindall Construction for over 10 years on various projects, we knew our vision for helping young people to reach their infinite potential was a shared one. Now we’re very excited to have the chance to take it one step further!

Our new joint venture (JV) will mean a seismic shift in the approach to training for the construction sector, addressing emotional health, suicide and gender imbalance, as well as general skills gaps and an ageing workforce. Already, 35 young people have joined our Pre-Apprenticeship Programme and are benefiting from the new JV!

What makes our new JV stand out?

We’re creating Modern Apprenticeship opportunities in Construction and Civil Engineering Operations at SCQF Level 5, within the Glasgow and South Ayrshire areas through our new bespoke Pre-Apprenticeship Programme.

We’ll also support the Foundation Apprenticeship model, bridging the gap between education and employment by delivering Civil Engineering and Craft frameworks. This will help a further 35 learners, all with aspirations to work within the construction sector.

As with all of our training, we’ll be taking a progressive and holistic approach in this sector-leading JV to support young people to overcome social and emotional barriers. There will be a coaching and health and wellbeing programme woven through the training with activities like body based mindfulness, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), physical exercise and yoga.

We provide skills for the future and our new JV programmes will be no different. Not only will they be aligned with employer demand, they will also reflect the key aims set out by Construction Scotland and the Construction Recovery Plan, covering areas like Net Zero Carbon and digital construction skills. We’re pleased to be supported by partners like CECA, CITB, Construction Scotland Innovation Centre and Digital Construction Skills Scotland.

Our programmes will be delivered in areas local to key Morgan Sindall Construction Projects, like the Prestwick Education Campus and Maybole Community Campus. We’ll support a wide variety of supply chain contractors through the Shared Apprenticeship Scheme model, with many having voiced their support for this model to support them during the most challenging economic climate our nation has faced in recent history.
