Construction: Closeness and Transparency
Visiting a BSF new school construction site recently in London, I was struck by just how close the construction site was to the existing building. What a brilliant opportunity for students and staff to learn about all aspects of the construction business, including all the careers opportunities involved in the creation of such a building. As all the students and staff could see almost the entire site from their first floor dining room- why wouldn't they?
Even better was the brilliant working relationship between the school and the project manager which ensures that by working as a team disruption is minimised and learning opportunities maximised. It really is a unique chance for both students and staff!
