On Tuesday 26th February, we were pleased to host students from Christ Church Junior School on a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths (STEAM) Tour in partnership with Engine Shed. The aim of the STEAM Tour was to introduce school students to the different opportunities available to them in the housing and development sectors.
We provided workshops on place making and house building, which showcased the varied roles and opportunities in the housing sector beyond building and labour, including design, architecture, and management. The pupils designed their dream homes to include things that were important to them. The children’s drawings will be judged by HAB Founder, Kevin McCloud, and the winner will be announced to their class teachers.
The workshop was led by Scott Haskins, HAB Construction Manager, who took the students through the complete process of home design, from design to delivery, and all of the people involved in making that happen.
Scott said: "We were delighted to work with Christ Church Junior School, and to see some of the childrens' wonderful ideas evolving. I can’t promise that we will be building football pitches and climbing walls in our next homes, but it was certainly great to see such creative flair!"
Drop us your details and we'll keep in touch
