Client: University of Central Lancashire
In May 2017 the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) procured refurbishment works for their Medical School via CIF. Completed in September, the newly refurbished medical school will provide students at UCLAN with state-of-the-art facilities that will support their learning across numerous medical disciplines.
Martin Whittle from the John Turner Construction Group, who were appointed to carry out the works, said “The John Turner Construction Group is delighted to be a supply partner to the Construction Impact Framework and we fully support the objective of working together for the common good of the communities in which we live and work. Working with UCLAN has given us continuity and we have been able to offer an additional 4 year apprenticeship to a local young man”.
Ben Waddington (Pictured above) will initially spend time on site, giving him a head start before beginning his course at Preston’s College where he will ultimately achieve an NVQ level 3 in Electrical Technology.
Construction Impact Framework is a value based socially driven framework; please have a look at our social impact case studies to see how the University of Central Lancashire and Construction Impact Framework are changing lives through procurement.
