Engineering Students from Warrington and Value Royal College were recently welcomed by Whitfield & Brown Construction to their Bewsey & Dallam Community Hub project, which was recently procured via the Procure Partnership’s Framework (North West).
Upon arrival students were provided with informative presentations by Geoff Woods of Baker Mallett, followed by members of the Whitfield & Brown delivery team. The students were introduced to the wider on-site team and provided with insights into what each role entails and their responsibilities. They were shown fly through CGI’s and drawings with a full explanation on the build, materials, and timescales. Whilst the students are undertaking an engineering course, this was the first time they had entered a live site which provided them with a valued awareness of day to day activities.
Jade Wilkinson Sector Leader for Engineering at Warrington & Vale Royal College commented, “We’re very grateful to Whitfield & Brown for inviting the college’s mechanical engineering students to visit their Warrington construction site. The students were able to tour the development and hear from various experts about their differing roles within the construction industry. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students and demonstrated the vast career opportunities available within this growing and dynamic sector. Thank you to Zoe and everyone at the site for such a warm welcome and insightful tour.”
Zoe Brooke Director at Whitfield & Brown Construction commented, “CSR is right at the core of our business at Whitfield & Brown, with our teams embracing the concept of giving back. We believe it is our duty to support future generations, giving them the tools and knowledge, they need to succeed in their future careers”.
