News First Hand Site Experience Construction Students

Students gained first-hand experience of a live building site when they were invited to tour the flagship Grange Park development from William Davis Homes.

The 25 first-year construction and engineering management undergraduates from Loughborough University along with tutor, Bruce Wright, met with site manager, Simon Smith, to learn more about the construction process.

Starting in the information centre with an initial safety talk and explanation of how a site is planned, the students were then guided around Grange Park to view real-life examples of road and drainage design, setting out and foundations as well as finished houses.

“It’s really important for the next generation of construction engineers, project managers and production professionals to see how a building site operates day-to-day,” said Smith.
