College Students Study New Build in Progress

Shufflebottom welcomed construction management students from Coleg Sir Gar on Friday (February 8th). The main purpose of the visit was to study the new building currently going up at the Cross Hands factory. 

 

The college requested the visit, to underpin students' learning about construction methods and structural steel buildings. 

 

The students, all studying at Level 3, spent time in the drawing office, going through CAD drawings and connection details, before going to the steel-framed buiding under construction, and into the factory. 

 

They were particularly interested in the health & safety aspects of erecting the frame, including the foundations, the plant used to lift and assemble components, and the process of connecting columns to the foundations. The structural engineer's drawings, on how the components of the frame are connected, were also keenly studied. 

 

Our photos show the visit. Peter Dixon (blue helmet outside and speaking in the meeting room inside), Shufflebottoms Health, Safety & Environmental Manager, explained processes and methods to the students, who were accompanied by lecturers Andrew Easton (with beard) and Helen Jeffrey (yellow helmet).
