Primary children at Jordanhill School received a special health and safety presentation from CALA Homes after construction work started at Jordanhill Park.
The workshop was delivered in partnership with demolition experts Dem-Master and included important information around staying safe around the construction site as well as demolition techniques and protective equipment.
Construction work started on 15 October with demolition equipment appearing on-site and CALA Homes were keen to speak to children at the school, which sits adjacent to the site.
CALA Homes West is to invest £100 million in constructing Jordanhill Park.
David Sutherland, Jordanhill Park project director, said: “Now that work has commenced on Jordanhill Park, we felt it was really important to spend some time with the children at Jordanhill School to show them how to look after themselves near the construction site.
“The children showed a real interest in what we had to say so hopefully the information will keep them safe as we continue our work between now and 2023.”
Richard Buchan, Jordanhill School head teacher of primary, said: “We were delighted to accept CALA Homes’ kind invitation to speak to our pupils about the building works near their school.
“This was a great learning opportunity for the children and I would like to thank CALA Homes and Dem-Master for taking the time to visit us.”
