Future tradespeople across the UK are getting first-hand tips for their careers in the housebuilding sector.
Eurocell is playing its part in tackling the construction skills shortage through a series of educational visits to colleges across the UK.
The visits to Further Education (FE) sites are designed to actively support the development of the next generation of tradespeople. Each visit involves a Eurocell representative sharing best practice around window and door cavity closure specification and installation for the housebuilding market.
Each session involves up to 40 apprentices, many of whom will go on to have careers in the housebuilding sector. During the visit, they learn:
How Cavalok cavity closures ensure a high standard of thermal insulation on new builds
How to identify the correct solution for any situation from the variety of available Cavalok cavity closure designs
What to be aware of during the installation process to ensure everything goes quickly and hassle–free
With varied installation methods deployed by UK housebuilders, it is essential the fundamentals of cavity closure methodology are understood. The Eurocell visits are designed to ensure apprentices gain a solid base of knowledge in this specialist area, with apprentices able to view product samples and expert demonstrations around the technicalities of the installation process on site.
Dean Hawkins, new build business development manager at Eurocell, says: “Investing time and resources to help those starting out in their construction careers is vital to support the sector’s future, so it’s great to be able to play our part and help apprentices grow their knowledge.
“Understanding best practice when it comes to Cavalok cavity closure choice and installation, and its importance in delivering window and door thermal efficiency in new builds, is one of the many areas that can assist construction apprentices as they embark on their educational journey."
