Construction workers help out at Leeds school

Have your say

Construction workers took a break from their building site in north Leeds to build a new pond for a nearby primary school.

BAM construction and its sub-contractors came to the aid of Alwoodley Primary School, to create a retreat for wildlife near the playground, while working on the new Adel Beck Secure Children’s Home.

Anthony Heaton, BAM’s sustainability advisor, said: “The combined in-kind value of the new pond development is around £12,000 which a school can ill-afford. For us, it is about using the opportunity when we build in an area to act responsibly, and use our time to give something back.”He added: “It’s been a proper team effort with our partners and the kids have something that looks great and which they can learn from.”
