Blackpool & The Fylde College Students visit Parkinson Site

28 Construction Diploma Students from Blackpool and the Fylde College visited the Fleetwood Primary Care Centre Project over the course of 1 day.
The students were given a site tour by the Site Manager and then given a short presentation on the roles within the construction industry. Staff from various disciplines attended the event and spoke to students regarding construction legislation, company procedures, types of construction methods and the various stages of a project.

The company received some great feedback from the students who attended:-

“It was interesting and informative, shed light on a lot of questions I had”

“Good trip. Interesting to see how building sites operate and function”

“Great trip. Useful information and would like to go on another trip when its complete”

“Good trip. Helped answer some questions that helped me have a better understanding of what goes on, on a site”

“By going on this trip I got more of an understanding of how on site construction takes place and the many different aspects involved”

“Useful trip!”

“It was a good trip, now able to visualise what goes on, on site easier. It will be helpful when it comes to assignments”

“Very intellectual trip, helped me understand the different roles in the construction  industry and the different aspects of construction methods”
