From the construction of mega sheds to community sheds, Winvic and Mountpark Logistics have joined forces again in Mansbridge, Southampton to support the local community.
A recently formed charity known as the “Mansbridge Shed Project” has launched a scheme to teach members of the local community woodwork skills. The charity aims to bring people together through woodwork classes, not only to learn new skills, but to give people the opportunity to converse, connect and create.
The charity had been looking for new premises and had gained permission to utilise a small plot of land at the local Mansbridge train station, where volunteers were using an existing dilapidated shed for storage. Winvic and Mountpark were delighted to assist by supplying and installing a new 12 foot by 10 foot purpose built shed as well as the associated ground works, to provide safe access.
The works were completed by Winvic’s Project Manager Richard Holmes and Site Engineer Krishan Tharmarajah with the assistance of other site staff on 17th August. The works involved stripping topsoil from the existing area, installing a new shed base and slabbed walkways, laying of weed membrane and gravelling the remaining areas.
The new shed is expected to be in place on 8th September with the long-awaited classes due to go live shortly after.
Richard Holmes stated:
“Construction is forever shaping the skyline, the future and communities, and here in Mansbridge it has been a great pleasure to provide the infrastructure for something that will go on to have a positive impact on the local community for some time to come”.
