HONOR GOODSITE'S BIG BUILD
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
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.
