Changing The Image Of Construction

Over the past year, we have worked hard to ensure that as a national award-winning considerate construction company we are committed to helping change the image of construction within the communities that we work. We achieve this through the implementation of key initiatives within the environments we work from effective planning to reduce local noise and disruption to introducing new working processes that speed up construction delivery, but the most important of them all in our opinion is educating the younger generation of the opportunities that the industry can bring to them.

Much has been written about a potential “skills gap” within the industry, too many jobs and not enough resource to meet fulfilment and demand. Munnelly Support Services have made it an objective to encourage construction professions and share our experiences within schools across London.

Meet the professional event  - A team went to visit a London school to share their experience of working within the industry.  Our session involved running 6 workshops throughout the morning. Each workshop contained between 9-12 students and included:

  • A 15-minute presentation on introducing the industry and demonstrating the types and range of careers available.
  • A case study presentation of how an employee at Munnellys has worked their way up the career ladder and the opportunities that have presented.
  • A team building activity where student were required to work together to build the tallest free-standing structure using spaghetti and marshmallows. The aim of the session was to demonstrate the fundamentals of teamwork, which is critical within our industry.

Dragons Den – Part of a volunteering scheme run by Newham Council aimed at getting school children involved with the industry. A team from Munnellys went to visit an East London school to form a Dragons Den panel for a class of year 5 students. The aim of the session was to provide constructive feedback and allow a Q&A with the panel and the students.

Team construction build workshop Munnellys provided a team of employees to act as judges within a school building competition. The aim of the task was for students to work together a team to construct a freestanding building from a list of available materials. Munnellys were tasked with providing support during the build process and then select a team they thought worked together with the best.

Careers development workshop –  As part of a careers week run by the school, Munnellys were invited to facilitate a CV writing workshop for year 10 students. The aim of the session was to make students understand and think about the key components of a CV and the experience they may need to get based upon their chosen future career path.

Helping to change the image of construction and influence the younger generation to fulfil a career in construction is something that Munnellys are thoroughly committed to doing. As gold award Considerate Constructor winners and advocates of the Considerate Constructor Scheme, we firmly believe that initiatives and schemes like these will make the difference to the future of our industry. 

We would like to thank you for your massive efforts throughout the project. We have all pulled together and everyone should be proud of what has been achieved.
