Liaising with a local college

Building good relationships with the local community proves beneficial for a number of reasons.

Good links with the community can not only help to promote the positive nature of the construction industry, it also helps to minimise any frustrations and annoyances that may occur amongst residents.

It is beneficial for sites to take this opportunity to promote the benefits of working within the construction industry, to encourage more people to consider a career in construction.

Below is an example of how a site has achieved this:

  • The Technology Faculty of the College, the client and the contractor jointly developed a comprehensive agreement setting out ways in which the project will form the basis for shared learning in 4 key areas:
  1. Work experience, site visits, potential employment for students;
  2. College staff development;
  3. Sponsorship of construction at the college;
  4. Courses at college.
