As part of our commitment to raising the profile of the construction industry and safety in particular among young people, HR Director Heather Davies gave a safety talk to the pupils of Millbank Primary School with the help of Considerate Constructors mascot 'Ivor Goodsite'.
With Cardiff Council's Geraint Evans assuming the role of Ivor Goodsite, the event was well received and the children were very keen to learn about the importance of safety and the dangers present in and around construction sites. The children were very interactive with the presentation team and took part in the question and answer session where they were very keen to find out more about progress on their new school. The presentation also marked the start of a safety poster design competition for pupils at the school where later this year WRW will award a prize for the three best posters created by the pupils.
The project itself involves the design and construction of a new single storey extension linked to the existing building to provide reception area, classrooms, main hall, kitchen and WC’s. The proposals aim to establish Millbank Primary School at 1 Form Entry and to extend the age range of the school from 4-11 to 3-11 by providing a nursery unit as part of the school from September 2014. To incorporate these requirements, works will also include refurbishment and alteration to the existing facility while external works include the provision of fencing to MUGA, new boundary walling, railings, drainage and services.
WRW and Cardiff County Council’s team would like to thank Headmistress Gail Allen, the staff at Millbank Primary School and the pupils in particular for a warm welcome and a great day.
