The Big Build

Niblock joined forces with Construction Youth Trust (CYT) to deliver The Big Build at St Saviour’s and St Olave’s School!
Nine inspirational sessions were held over five months for a group of young ladies from Year 9. Their project task was to plan, budget, pitch and negotiate the price of materials to build a handcrafted bench for the school. The sessions were designed to have maximum impact on the student’s future career aspirations whilst gaining key skills and meeting inspirational industry professionals!

The Big Build Case Study

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your support with the Big Build session at St Saviour’s & St Olave’s school with my Year 9 group; the students loved it! 

It really brings the industry to life when our students meet people that actually work in construction.

This project is so important – the group, as you know, have diverse academic ability, so the support you gave, for example, during the maths-led materials costing exercise, really contributed to their confidence, and understanding, whilst doing that most precious thing of connecting school subjects to future jobs. Honestly, you were great! I appreciate you.” – Wendy Heller, Senior Construction Skills Manager

Jordan’s Site Visit

This week, Jordan, our head office-based Team Administrator, attended our Southwark Hostels Refurbishment Contract to help expand upon her awareness of construction sites as part of her training. Jordan was able to see first-hand how some of the materials she procures are integrated within projects. It was also a fantastic opportunity for Jordan to see a different side of the business and meet the site operatives in person.

“As a young woman working within the construction industry, and specifically within procurement, it was a great opportunity to see how materials were being integrated into the project, as well as the specific use of plant on site. The site team provided me with a detailed insight into some of the logistical challenges and now that I have a better understanding I can ensure that materials and plant are sourced and delivered with these challenges in mind.

I am looking forward to the opportunity to learn and make a difference at Niblock.” Jordan
