Congratulations to the winning team ‘The Shard’ your presentation and design development was fantastic. Well done to all the teams involved in this years construction partnership project you made it tough on the judges. Also a huge thank you to our judging panel for taking time out their schedules to take part in today’s final.
This years marks our 4th year running the Construction Partnership Project with Belmont Academy and Ayrshire College. 3rd year pupils apply and interview for the project with 12 pupils selected to participate. This years project was based on our Affordable Housing Development at Dickson Drive in Irvine. The project runs over the course of 6 weeks with 12 lessons where they have to design, cost plan and programme an affordable housing development. They also attend college where they learn, auto cad, joinery, bricklaying and Painting & Decorating. At the end of the 6 weeks the three separate teams then present their final development to a panel of judges, with the winning team receiving the Ashleigh Trophy and vouchers for flip out in Glasgow, each participant will also receive their dynamic youth award.
