The Manchester College builds industry ties with local Construction Company, Lovell Homes.
Construction and Engineering students at The Manchester College have received generous supply of timber from construction company Lovell Homes.
Construction and Engineering students at The Manchester College have received generous support from construction company Lovell Homes, who have donated a large supply of timber to the department.
The company were working on a project at their St Jerome’s site when they had the idea to donate their spare materials, in order to contribute to the development of future practitioners.
Lovell Homes’ driving force is an ongoing commitment to building futures, changing lives and leaving a lasting legacy in every community in which they work.
Lovell’s donation consisted of 1500m of skirting board, 2000m of architrave, door lining, a Velux window, two door casings, numerous wall ties, a large quantity of damp proof membrane, ply wood for jigs and templates, glazing bead, and sundry items of nails.
The donation is greatly appreciated by the College and is a step towards to building further industry ties in the local community.
Andrew Addy, Director of Construction and Engineering at the college, described it as, “a godsend of useful materials.”
Chris Wright, Assistant Principal at The Manchester College, said: “The donation will benefit the department massively and the students have been thrilled to hear of the support from Lovell Homes.
“We have a lot of hardworking students and this is a wonderful example to be led by. A huge thank you to the labourers for stopping by.”
