On Thursday 10th February, Les Quennevais School’s ‘Design, Engineer, Construct!’ (DEC!) students will visit the construction site of St Helier Waterfront’s Horizon Development.
The visit is hosted by Jersey Development Company (JDC) in collaboration with their joint venture partners, Groupe Legendre.
Students will have an overview of various building works, from the sub-structure to the finishes. This visit will provide students with an on-site understanding of the construction process and the various roles available within the industry.
The Les Quennevais students are sponsored by local contractor ROK, JDC’s main contractor for the IFC 6 office development at the international Finance Centre. JDC said that they are delighted to support and assist ROK with this important element of engaging with students who are looking to develop key knowledge and employability, technical and business skills required for a professional career in architecture, design, engineering or construction.
The ROK course sponsorship enables Les Quennevais to obtain individuals from all sectors of the construction industry to assist with the course syllabus learning and provide an opportunity to explore the real world of work. Equally, this is a major step forward to nurture students into the industry, which has a wide range of career opportunities.
