Plymouth Open Doors
Steve Price, Derry’s Cross Contract Manager took the lead when we opened our site doors this month.
Building Plymouth, a council-led partnership, arranged the site tours to encourage and promote more careers in construction.
As part of the national “Open Doors” Campaign delivered by Build UK in partnership with CITB, the Council led Building Plymouth partnership was offering a unique chance for local people to see ‘behind the scenes’ at eleven major live construction sites.
Aiming to inspire young people, career changers and job seekers to join the industry, as well as engaging with local residents.
Council Leader Ian Bowyer said: “I am delighted that our Building Plymouth partnership has co-ordinated such an impressive line-up of construction sites opening for local people to visit to find out more about the jobs and apprenticeships being created through the major developments across the city.”
Feedback was very positive from the tours around our Derry’s site. Video footage was also taken on the day by local press to give an idea of the work going on at this old Department Store. Read more about the Derry’s Project here.
