Bilton Grange Architecture & Sustainability talks

Category: Education

In enriching sessions designed to spark curiosity and inspire young minds, Design Lead and Architect, Katherine Morton and Sustainability Manager Sheona Green, visited Bilton Grange Prep School to deliver talks on Architecture and Sustainability.

The primary objective was to introduce students to the field of architecture and sustainability, highlighting its importance, the creative processes involved, and potential career paths.

Each session started with a presentation and then followed by a lively Q and A session by the students.

Sheona recounted her experiences working on various projects, including the challenges faced and the successes achieved. Her journey demonstrated the rewarding nature of a career dedicated to sustainability, While Katherine answered questions on “what inspired you to become an architect and what is your favourite project you have worked on and why?”

The talks received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both students and teachers. Students expressed increased interest in architecture and sustainability, with many inspired to explore the subject further. Teachers noted the educational value of the session, appreciating the real-world connection it provided to classroom learning.

Nicola Sodhi, Assistant Head commented, ‘I wanted to send a quick message to say how impressed I was by Sheona Green’s workshop to Year Eight about sustainability in the construction industry today; I was lucky enough to catch the second group. The topic was the perfect way to round off the Year Eight Geography topic on Sustainability, and it was great to consider this topic in a completely different manner – I learnt a lot about carbon!  Sheona had put a lot of work into her presentation and workshop, and the pupils’ actively engaged in the group activity. I really like how Sheona talked about the career pathway she has taken to becoming the Stepnell Sustainability Manager. It was a good insight into future careers for our pupils. The social value and engagement project keeps getting better and better.’
