Building On The Foundations With Exminster Primary School
05 Nov 2013

Some 60 pupils from Exminster Primary School visited the building site at Linden Homes’ popular Milbury Reach development to find out more about housebuilding materials, as part of the national curriculum.

Tina Roberts, a teacher from Exminster Primary School said: “The pupils loved getting dressed up in the safety gear and learning about the different methods of construction. The project manager was really patient and explained to them the process of building a home and the materials they used.

“Being able to touch the different type of bricks and insulation makes much more of an impact on them than what they’re told about in the classroom and it’s been a wonderful experience for them.”

Robert Baker, project manager for Linden Homes’ Milbury Reach development said: “We were thrilled to have the children visit site - we have so many different types of materials to hand, it’s the perfect place for them to learn about this topic.

“The school visit also provided us with a great opportunity to talk to pupils about site safety which is very important to us.”

Milbury Reach has a marketing suite which features samples of the boilers that are used, the wall insulation, different kitchen units etc which helps to bring the whole process to life.

The development has been incredibly popular and attracts high levels of visitors. Currently available are a range of two, three and four bedroom homes.

The show home and marketing suite at Milbury Reach is open daily from 10am – 5pm, off. For more information contact Dana Schell on 0844 4173597 or email
