McCormack Demolition are working with Graham-Bam Healthcare Partnership on the Belfast Royal Victoria Hospital’s new maternity unit. Both companies teamed up to deliver a Careers in Construction/ Demolition event to local children. The workshop was specifically aimed at young girls aged 10 to 13 years participating in a local summer scheme.
The girls enjoyed using games and building blocks to explore the challenge of removing an existing building from a confined space in order to accommodate the new construction. This gave the girls the opportunity to identify skills required to plan, prepare and deliver a major development project within the boundary of a busy hospital in its city centre location.
The benefits included:
• Early engagement with school children
• Introducing construction career choices to girls
• Problem solving
• Team Building Skills
• Time Management Skills
• Diversity within the Industry
