Construction firm gives Wirral Met students first-hand tuition at docklands project.
THE construction of Wirral Met College Campus, in Birkenhead, will give its students valuable hands-on experience.
Builder Morgan Sindall has started work on the PS8m scheme, the first building on Peel Group's Wirral Waters development.
And Morgan Sindall will provide learning opportunities to Wirral Met construction students, giving them an insight into all aspects of a major construction project.
The construction group's team will also offer health and safety tuition, allowing the students to gain first-hand experience on a live project.
The scheme is due for completion this September and will be the first key landmark on Wirral Waters - a 30-year project by Peel to transform the Birkenhead dockland, and one half of the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone.
The Morgan Sindall team is being led by Wirral-born area director Barry Roberts, who said: "This is my home town and the college has enhanced the prospects of Wirralians for generations and it is gratifying to help people in the region continue their work."
