Tower Hamlets College Construction Students Visit the Olympic Park
On Wednesday 27 th November, Entry Level Basic Construction Skills and Level 1 Painting and Decorating students visited the Olympic Park in Stratford. The visit was organised by ISG, an international construction services company. During the visit the students received an overview of ISG & the South Park Hub. ISG also introduced the students to cross-laminated timber. Méabh Browne, Sustainability Manager at ISG, said that she hoped this was only the beginning of a fruitful relationship with the college and its students. Andy O’Connor, tutor at the college, commented that the visit was very worthwhile and beneficial. He also noted that ISG’s presentation coincided with several areas of the group’s coming assignments on sustainability and would help sharpen their understanding, having seen the principles applied on a real project.
