Level 2 joiners were recently asked to help with some maintenance at Tarporley CE Primary School. They were asked to help with the maintenance of two doors, the door frames and a sandstone building that is used in the school ground.

The construction students were delighted to meet with Peter Howell, the site maintenance manager to get a view of the project and take some measurements, the students then created a materials list and a quote.

A price was agreed for the materials and they have been delivered to college this week. The bench joiners have now produced a working drawing so that they can manufacture the doors and frames. Once the risk assessment and method statement are complete the site joiners will take them to the school to complete the work.

Throughout the project our students have conducted themselves in a very professional manner and they were made to feel very welcome by the school.

If you want to study a course with great opportunities come and talk to the Construction staff at our next Course Open Event.

Students visit Ecobuild 2015

On Thursday 5th March, Construction staff and students travelled to the Excel Arena in London to visit Ecobuild 2015.

The exhibition is in its 11th year of championing a greener built environment, with two large arenas with different themes running throughout them. Themes included; Championing the need for change in the way we interact with the environment and Nature and the Built Environment, which brought together a number of features to educate and inspire visitors.

Conferences, seminars and lots of exhibitors showcasing their products created a jam packed agenda for all attendees. The Practical Installer live arena was one of the most popular attractions of the exhibition. More than 14 suppliers provided live demonstrations to delegates, with a strong emphasis placed on explaining how installers can benefit from Renewable Heat Incentives (RHI). Demonstrations involved a number of real-life ‘before and after’ scenarios, which highlighted both the impact on a property’s energy efficiency and the economic benefits that result from the installation of specific products.
