A mixture of infant and junior pupils from Burry Port Primary School attended a Design Workshop last week to learn about the principles of design and construction.
Presented by George and Hannah of WRW's project Architect, Architype, the children learned about the role of the design team on a construction project and how the design for a new school evolves. Using examples from their own school being built they were also taught about the importance of sustainable features such as insulation, natural resources and materials. A question and answer session raised some very interesting questions from the group demonstrating the children's genuine interest in the project.
Following the children's workshop WRW organised for Alan Clarke a Passivhaus Specialist to give an M&E Coordination Workshop to our M&E Contractors, Lorne Stewart. The informative workshop was also attended by the Client along with the Clark of Works and WRW delivery personnel.
Construction Manager Andrew Collins then took the opportunity to give out prizes to the participants of the painting competition with the winner receiving a signed match rugby ball from the Scarlets. Nine pupils entered the competition which was to design a poster based on what they saw on site at a recent visit. An Ivor Goodsite Safety Presentation is planned to take place at the school very soon.
The project is progressing well with the Elliptical Pod Building currently being erected and the Zinc Roofing about to commence to the KS2 building. Works to the sensory garden have also commenced.
