Mactaggart & Mickel welcomes budding builders to Greenan Views
Mactaggart & Mickel Homes welcomed a group of inquisitive pupils from Wellington School Nursery to their development at Greenan Views in Doonfoot on 24 February.
The group of three to five year old nursery children were at the site for an educational visit as part of their science engineering project which is inspired by the story of the three little pigs and how they built their houses. Mactaggart & Mickel Homes’ Site Manager Stuart Gillespie, General Foreman Andrew Oliver and Health and Safety Manager Karen Bradley were on hand to tell them all about the process of building a house.
The group and their teacher Carol Gibson were shown inside the Burnet house style, a striking four-bedroom family home which is part of the housebuilder’s Design Collection, inspired by and named after some of Scotland’s most famous architects.
The children were given a tour of the show home where they heard how Mac & Mic creates their luxury homes, from early planning to the construction stage and then onto the interior styling of the finished house.
Stuart Gillespie, Site Manager at Greenan Views said: “It’s very important to us that we engage with the local community and it’s been wonderful to see the kids from Wellington School Nursery so interested in how we build houses. I hope it’s been informative for their science project and that we’ve inspired a few of them to consider future careers in the construction industry!”
Carol Gibson, the children’s teacher added: “The children have been so excited to visit Greenan Views to see real life houses being built. They’ve absolutely loved hearing all about the process of building and have learned lots to develop their science projects. Thanks to Mactaggart & Mickel Homes for giving the children such insight on their visit today.”
