HONOR GOODSITE'S BIG BUILD

COMPETITIONWINNERS!

Honor Goodsite's Big Build helped forge meaningful relationships between the

construction industry and young people with an amazing 32 entries submitted.

Issue 12 | December 2017

12

WINNER: Robertson Construction

With the help of: Marine Park First School

Build theme: Spanish City Dome, Whitley Bay

Being positioned directly opposite the building, the school

chose this icon as a fitting entry for Honor’s Big Build.

Using recyclable materials from the construction site, the

model building was designed and created by 30 pupils

whose interpretation represents what it would look like if

it were being built in the 21st century.

WINNER: Cedar Developments

With the help of: Eastcliffe Resource Industrial Centre

Build theme: Manx Cottage

The project team provided lots of materials the centre

could reuse from the site, including plywood from the

building that were used to create a frame to hold the

cottage together. Once the panels were in position, these

were sanded by volunteer Scott, and the next job was to

paint the cottage, which was named Feather Cottage.

WINNER: Carillion Civil Engineering

With the help of: Wellesley Primary School

Build theme: Sustainable Railway Station

The pupils were required to incorporate three sustainable

design features in the model, such as green roof spaces

and wildlife enhancements. Every child received a reward

but the winner was 'Wildlife Station' which incorporated

whisks for wind turbines, a green roof wildlife habitat and

rainwater harvesting for flushing the toilets.

The standard of entries and the stories behind them

have been both compelling and inspiring, while the

community spirit shown has been enormous, which

made picking just three winners an incredibly difficult

task. A huge thank you to everybody who took part in

Honor's first ever Big Build competition!

The wide variety of entries received for the Big Build

competition has shown a high level of creativity, skill

and teamwork by pupils and community groups of

all ages to build iconic structures such as the Tower of

London, Big Ben, the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of

China, to name just a few.
