Linden Homes Inspires The Next Generation Of Master Builders
06 Mar 2019

Pupils from chestnuts class at Bearnes Primary School visited Linden Homes’ Kings Gate development to find out more about housebuilding and the different materials used.

As well as a tour of the site and the show home, the pupils were shown safety clothing and discussed how to be aware of their surroundings. Site manager, Pete Smith explained the housebuilding process and discussed the variety of work done on site, from plumbing to carpentry, bricklaying to decorating. Each child was given a Lego construction set to remember their visit.

Teacher, Sarah Luxton from Bearnes Primary School, said: “The children loved their visit to a real building site and Chloe volunteered to get dressed up in all the safety clothing to demonstrate how builders protect themselves, which was very popular!

“Being able to see a house in construction and a digger in action is much more memorable than us talking about it in the classroom. The children were very excited and really enjoyed exploring the development.”

Some of the pupils said:

  • “We went to see lots of houses and they had loads of rooms. My favourite was the Elsa room.”
  • “We saw a huge, awesome digger that moved very slowly!”
  • “I had a lovely time. Emma and Pete were really great at telling us all about what the buildings were made of and answering our questions.”

Emma Mackay at Linden Homes, said: “We were delighted to welcome the pupils to Kings Gate, they were enthusiastic to see the construction and I hope we’ve inspired a few budding builders!”
