West Lindsey Building Control provide inspiration to schoolchildren in Construction Week 2019

Schoolchildren across Lincolnshire have been inspired at the first day of Construction Week 2019, which showcases careers in architecture, building, quantity surveying and more.

Pupils from across the county attended the Lincolnshire Showground in West Lindsey, to get an insight into the construction industry from the best in the business. The event aims to raise awareness and interest in the diversity of careers available within the construction industry and runs until 3 October 2019.

A number of workshops with 'hands-on' and fun activities, were available for students to get a good idea of what a career in construction entails. Pupils from a number of schools took part in 27 hands-on construction related activities, which helped them to get a good idea of what a career in construction entails.
