The building of the Humber Construction Hub is progressing well at its site off Warne Road in Bransholme, Hull.
Fencing is up, tarmac is laid and Portacabins are installed, along with installation of lighting, septic tank and storage containers.
Local contractor Excel Modular Buildings are leading on the development using local labour, as are sub-contractors M.B. Roche & Sons.
Nigel Hollington, Humber Construction Hub Manager, said: “In a few short weeks’ time the Hub will be opening its doors to local learners who are keen to enter the construction industry with a work ready skills and experience that employers in the sector need. And, even before it’s built Hub learners are getting the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, like Conner Calvert (pictured) who is working with M.B. Roche & Sons on the site groundworks.”
As a not-for-profit entity, the Humber Construction Hub relies on the good will of local businesses who can provide sponsorship and donations that will support the training programmes provided by the Hub.
