£10m Construction Skills Centre Opens in South London

A £10 million construction skills centre that will provide essential training for the next generation of construction workers has been officially opened.

Architect George Clarke, best known for his TV series ‘Amazing Spaces’, officially launched the Technology, Engineering & Construction (TEC) Centre.

The South London centre will provide the opportunity for 1,000 students to gain key skills in areas such as carpentry, plastering and bricklaying.

Furthermore, the centre, which is a branch of Carshalton College, will offer courses in motor vehicle engineering and electrical work for trainees who want to go into the engineering and automotive sectors.

CITB representatives attended the grand opening which saw groups of young people participate in hands on sessions which aimed to provide them with an idea of the crucial skills they need to learn in order to forge a career in the industry.

Also on show was a careers fair which gave employers the opportunity to meet future job candidates, as well as giving them the chance to see the new centre for themselves.

Trainees who attend the TEC Centre will benefit from workshops which provide a modern learning experience with state of the art equipment on offer.

Mr Clarke, who is also a vocational training ambassador and has also played a part in the regeneration of his hometown Sunderland, commented that the TEC Centre will give students the opportunity to become tomorrow’s tradespeople.

But it's turned out a lot better than expected. There's still nothing special about the architecture but the cladding really elevates it - especially when you see it in the flesh.

I really disliked it in the renders as well. Not so bad after all.

Thank you for updating us Mr Cladding, Portonuts et al, I appreciate it. SE9 must be taking one big rest. It's always an absolute delight to see the cranes moving and the cores rising - poetry in motion of course! No i'm only kidding gents (and ladies if there are any) keep it up.

London has many shades of black and blue and more to come, can't wait for the developments to gather more pace.

I second that, thank you Mr_Classing & Portnuts. I hope SE9 is having a nice break.

Yes, next review is in 5 years. Provided costs of living in London go down ans legislation is relaxed even more there are no reasons for them to move to HK.

Balfour Beatty bags £170m Heathrow Airport project

Balfour Beatty has picked up a £170m contract to upgrade baggage screening and handling systems for Heathrow Airport.

The project awarded through the Heathrow Airport Limited Delivery Integrator Framework will involve upgrading and installing baggage screening and handling systems at Heathrow’s eastern baggage facility.

Balfour said it planned to use the latest Building Information Modelling techniques to define the most efficient approach to design, manage logistics and to interface with live airport operations.

Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty chief executive, said: “This contract award is testament to the strength of the partnership we have developed with Heathrow Airport over the last 17 years.

“The UK aviation sector is a core market for Balfour Beatty and we are delighted to play our part in helping Heathrow maintain its position as a leading travel hub and supporting local employment.”
