Site visit brings construction to life
24 July 2012
Lively youngsters at a Gloucestershire primary school swapped the classroom for a building site with the help of Persimmon Homes Severn Valley.
The regional housebuilder invited pupils from Sharpness Primary School to see at first-hand how its homes were being built at The Mallards in Berkeley. Pupils also got to grips with a range of tools and building materials used by the workers on site every day.
The development located on Sanigar Lane features a range of three and four bedroom homes constructed using Space4 timber frame technology. Dressed in hard hats and high visibility jackets, the children were introduced to site manager Paul Hubbard and were shown how each Persimmon home is built to offer improved insulation and air-tightness to create cosier and more comfortable living spaces.
Nicola Reed, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Severn Valley said: “Showing the pupils around our Mallards development is a great way for them to experience all of the different processes involved with house building. It also gave them the opportunity to ask us lots of questions about how our homes are constructed.
“It’s also good to see the children take a keen interest in energy saving, which is important to safeguard everyone’s future.”
The Mallards is a Persimmon Homes development located to the South West of Gloucester. Both NewBuy and Part Exchange are available to help prospective buyers secure a foot or move up the property ladder with ease. For more information call 0843 357 6616.
