Weston College has teamed up with one of the UK’s largest privately-owned construction company to revamp its local town hall.
Willmott Dixon, which aims to be carbon neutral by 2012, will carry out the £9.7 million project with the help of construction and engineering students.
Weston College executive director Peggy Tovey, said: “This is a prestigious partnership for the college and we look forward to working closely with Willmott Dixon.”
Willmott Dixon’s assistant building manager, Mark Wolverson, said: “We like to get involved in local communities and Weston College has been very supportive.
It is believed that 99 per cent of unwanted materials from the town hall site will be recycled, helping the company with its aim to send zero waste to landfill by 2012.
The waste electrical materials will be donated to students for practical work.
The students will also have a chance to tour the site and take part in work experience during the refurbishment of the Town Hall to accommodate a new library, registry office, roof repairs, replacement windows and wiring.
