Carillion Civil Engineering

With the help of:

Wellesley School


Sustainable Railway Station

Carillion and Network Rail challenged Year 3 pupils

at Wellesley Primary School in Yate to take part

in the Big Build competition, with 32 students


Amy Bartell and Matt McCombe from Carillion and

Lily Exton and Jon Turton, from Network Rail, put an

extra twist on the challenge; not only did the pupils

have to build the model railway stations out of

recycled materials, but the teams had to design and

cost the build as well.

The pupils were required to incorporate at least

three sustainable design features in the model, such

as green roof spaces and wildlife enhancements.

Every child received a reward but the overall winner

was ‘Wildlife Station’ which ingeniously incorporated

metal whisks for wind turbines, a green roof wildlife

habitat and rainwater harvesting for flushing the

station toilets.
