Transforming woodland in the school ground

Construction projects based in a school have a particularly good opportunity to engage with their local community and advance the efforts to improve the image of the industry.

See the examples below for how one project achieved this:

  • The site coordinated and worked with the school, subcontractors, suppliers and volunteers from the Woodland Trust.
  • They built a timber learning area along and environmental garden in a disused area of woodland.
  • The shelter includes seating and environmental posters on the walls.
  • The garden includes insect hotels, feeding areas, rainwater harvesting, a squirrel run and benches.
  • The structure and garden have all been constructed from reused materials from this and other sites and funded by donations and project savings.

This initiative has provided a lasting legacy of the project for the school to appreciate for years to come.
