SOUTH MIMMS — Carpentry students studying for their Level 2 and 3 City & Guilds qualification at Oaklands College were taken on an educational trip to South Mimms, Hertfordshire yesterday.
Trowel Trades Coordinator Andy Rosser was joined by Carpentry & Joinery Lecturer Simon Christian and Curriculum Technician Jamie Hanley at the R.G Carter construction site at the Royal Veterinary College.
The £20 million redevelopment of its Hertfordshire campus was awarded to R.G Carter in August 2019 and is expected to be completed by February 2021.
Oaklands College students were able to visit the site and gain practical knowledge and understanding, whilst witnessing the result of their theory and practical learning.
Students received a brief site induction and were able to experience a busy construction site.
The current students met a former Carpentry student who was busy constructing wooden shuttering in preparation, on a busy site with tower cranes, mobile cranes, pilling rigs, steel fixers and multiple tradesmen.
