Interaction with neighbouring schools

The outside appearance of every site should be tidy, organised and professional.

This is particularly important within residential areas.

The hoardings can not only leave a good impression upon passers-by, they could also be used to interact and communicate with neighbouring residents, especially if the site is next door to a school.

Below are examples of how sites have previously interacted with neighbouring schools, with the head teachers permission:

  • Photo profiles of the workforce were displayed to pupils in their playground, along with progress pictures and things to watch out for in upcoming activities;
  • Site workers engaged with the pupils on first name terms and kick-started their interests for construction;
  • A board at the base of the Heras boundary stopped balls getting through at play times.
These examples demonstrate how smaller sites can contribute to the community, this innovation was achieved while constructing an extension for the primary school on a 25 week project, with the approximate value of £350K.
