Bilton Grange site visit

Category: Construction

The pupils of Bilton Grange Preparatory School had an exciting opportunity to visit a live construction site, right on their own school grounds, where we are currently undertaking the construction of a new boarding house for seven to 13-year-olds.

Organised by the site team, the tour was both educational and engaging. We ensured the safety of the pupils by setting up a secure and segregated area for their visit. During the visit, the pupils had the chance to meet various members of the team, including Eddie Cronshaw, the project manager, Sharon Symons, the senior administrator, and Tom Cronshaw, the trainee quantity surveyor. They provided insightful talks and information about the construction process.

One of the highlights of the visit was the opportunity for the pupils to learn about different construction plant items such as small excavators, dumpers, and rollers. They were able to observe these machines in action and ask questions about how they work. The presence of groundworks contractor R O’Donaghey added to the experience, as they demonstrated first hand how the plant machinery operates.

Overall, it was a fantastic day for both the pupils and the staff involved. With the construction site located on the school premises, the pupils will have the unique opportunity to witness the entire construction process, from its inception to completion. This hands-on experience will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on the young minds of Bilton Grange Preparatory School.
