Dr Triplett's School Visit
We recently held a community presentation for a class of 10 year old students at Dr Triplett’s CE Primary School in Hayes, Middlesex.
Our team showed the children how to go about building a brick wall, highlighting the skills involved and the range of everyday materials we often use on site.
We also asked them to get involved with some material strength tests, allowing them to compare the advantages and disadvantages of specific construction materials like timber and brick.
The day ended with cakes for all the students, and we will look back on this community event as a fantastic occasion for both our company and Dr Triplett’s!
Jack Mulligan Golf Day
Here at the Market Design & Build, we are passionate about getting involved with our local community. We were therefore delighted to be given the opportunity to sponsor the Jack Mulligan Golf Day Fundraiser on September 11th 2015 at Sudbury Golf Club.
This was the first event hosted by Clan London Ltd who were looking for an opportunity to raise funds for their forthcoming feature film ‘Jack Mulligan’. They also wanted to support the Irish arts industry based here in London.
Following a great round of 18 holes, the guests were treated to a delicious evening meal along with live entertainment. The night was then made complete with an exciting auction hosted by former footballer and Queens Park Rangers legend Shaun Derry. There was also the opportunity for some socialising, with the team getting the time to speak to the other participants and event organiser.
A brilliant day all round!
In March 2015 we were asked to attended a local primary school in Hayes to show a class of 8 year olds how to build a brick wall.
Aaron and the team spent the afternoon showing the children how to begin the structure of the wall and talk about the importance of safety.
The children were shown the process of actually creating the brick and the contents that go inside. They were also shown the different types of bricks and the types of insulation. The team then gave the children a chance to help make the cement that binds the bricks together.
The team carried out a step-by-step lesson teaching the children from start to finish the processes involved in building a solid brick wall. Engaging with the children, they also got the chance to see the wall being knocked down. This was shortly followed by a question and answer session where the children could ask any questions that they may have had.
It was a fun filled afternoon, enjoyed by all and most importantly the children.
