Foundations Live, the region’s biggest co-located construction trade and careers event, took place for the third time this month. As an event, it attracted by far the biggest audience yet, with over 1,000 people in attendance across the day.
The event saw hundreds of industry professionals and schools visit Bishop Burton College’s equine arena, which hosted more than 70 companies exhibiting products and services and advising hundreds of students on how to gain a route into the workplace.
Foundations Live, the region’s biggest co-located construction trade and careers event, will be hosted for the third time this year on 10th October at Bishop Burton College, East Riding of Yorkshire.
The event, held in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), will address an increasing demand in skills and employment in the region’s workplaces. It is estimated more than 9,000 jobs in the sector will be available in the next five years, with total growth in the Yorkshire and Humber region forecast at 1.1%.
Beverley Parklands Care Home, the new 73-bed residential care facility developed by East-Yorkshire based care provider Yorkare Homes welcomed its first residents at the end of September.
The facility, which occupies a prominent position by the A1174 to the South-East corner of the town, is a triumph of traditional build techniques, cutting-edge architecture and a unique, high-end fit-out which is individually tailored for those with specific health needs.
Construction trade and careers event, Foundations Live 2017, was a resounding success, following its second year.
The event is a collaboration between construction firm Hobson & Porter, Jewson and Bishop Burton College – a long-standing partner of Hobson & Porter, which hosted the event in its equine arena. The college’s construction department experiences year-on-year growth and Foundations Live is becoming an important date in its calendar.
Construction students at Bishop Burton College have been given a showcase of industry leading products by national suppliers and businesses.
An exhibition took place at the college featuring a visit from leading interior lining supplier British Gypsum. The visit was organised and co-ordinated in partnership by Hull-based construction firm Hobson & Porter and UK materials supplier Jewson.
