A leading construction and regeneration specialist has made a generous donation to New College Lanarkshire’s Faculty of Engineering and Automotive to assist construction students with practical projects.
Keepmoat Homes has donated additional wood to the College from their site at Marchfield Avenue in Paisley, which will be used by Construction students in the Motherwell Campus. This was supplied via Walker Timber Ltd. in Bo’ness.
It will allow students to carry out the practical elements of their courses, which are held in the College’s state-of-the-art engineering block.
LeeAnn Rattigan, Assistant Site Manager for Keepmoat Homes, said: “We were delighted to offer the surplus would from our site to the next generation of construction workers and hope they will benefit in their practical classes and projects.”
John Quinn, Construction Lecturer at New College Lanarkshire, said: “The additional wood will make a big contribution in assisting our young learners in their practical assessments.
“It is so important to the students that we have the support of local businesses to help keep us at the forefront of the industry.
“I’d like to say a big thank-you to LeeAnn and her team at Keepmoat Homes and we hope that this will be an ongoing partnership for the future.”
