Creative Construction: Students Collaborate with Farrans to Claim National Success

7th August 2017

Students at Marjory Kinnon Special Educational Needs (SEN) School in Feltham, West London, are delighted to have clinched the Runner Up spot in this year’s CCS Hoarding Competition.

The popular contest saw over 3,000 children dip their brushes into paint-pots in order to decorate the hoarding on more than 70 construction sites across the UK.

The key aims of the competition are not only to engage children in a creative process but to provide an opportunity for them to meet with the construction teams reshaping their local communities, in order to gain a better understanding of the wider industry.

And the inquisitive students at Marjory Kinnon SEN certainly  took that opportunity when Farrans Site Engineer, Kevin Gallagher, and Community Engagement Officer, Andrea Kokonas, came along to assist with the art and design project.

Both students and teachers were delighted to hear of the excellent site progress to date.

The new school facilities will see the construction of a dedicated two-storey school, spread over 9,500m² of teaching space.

The building will be a new and inspiring space for primary and secondary special educational needs pupils, with a range of therapy and physical activity spaces geared towards quality learning in a safe, flexible environment. 

Following plenty of design consultation with the Farrans team, the creative group of students eventually agreed on the hoarding design – a pattern of concentric circles to symbolise the continuous nature of learning and education.

And certainly something to brighten up the Farrans site team too!
