Multiplex Student Visit
Multiplex is a world leading construction company delivering landmark property, commercial structures and infrastructure. Our Level 3 Engineering and Level 3 Building Services students recently visited one of their London construction sites to receive a talk on different career paths in the construction and engineering sectors.
Focused on sustainable infrastructure and property growth, Multiplex have projects in Toronto, Australia, the Middle East and the UK. During their visit, students were given information about a variety of potential career paths available to them, which was followed by a site tour of 48 Carey Street.
Award-winning architects and interior designers Dexter Moren Associates, the contractors for Multiplex, also attended to talk to our students. Senior architect Anna Hanson, gave an insight into the work of architects on-site at their new high end residential development, under construction at Lincoln Square in London, which is being built for Lodha Developers. Principal Mechanical and Electrical Engineer Ryan Baker from Hoare Lea also gave a talk about the role of M&E Engineers in ensuring that buildings work.
Employability Facilitator Trina Tiernan said: “Hearing about different routes and career paths into the industry has given many of the students some great ideas about the varied roles available within the sector - this information is invaluable to the students as they make decisions on their futures.”
Callum, who is studying Engineering, said: “It has been an eye-opening visit to see other sectors within the construction industry and the different paths that are available to us. I am going to be focusing on progressing to an apprenticeship after this qualification, and then further investigate different routes.”
Off the back of the visit, two of our students have been put forward for GAP work experience with Multiplex.
Engineering is all about problem solving, trying to benefit the future of construction and technology. If this interests you as a potential career path take a look at our courses here.
