We hosted an educational talk at our Acklam Hall development in Middlesbrough for BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Interior Design students from Teesside University.

The talk focused on the early stages of the building process and marks the start of a long-term partnership with the university.

Debbie Whittingham, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “We have teamed up with Teesside University to offer first-hand knowledge of the residential construction sector, which we hope will prove valuable for the students.

“This educational talk at Acklam Hall was the first of a series of talks we are holding across several of our Middlesbrough-based developments. As Acklam Hall is relatively new, it provided the ideal location for us to teach the students about what happens at the early stages in the life of a development.”

Penelope Tiffney, Senior Lecturer in Spatial Design at Teesside University, comments: “We were delighted with how the first talk went and have had fantastic feedback from our students too. It was great for them to see first-hand all the factors that go into the creation of a new development.”

Teesside University’s Interior Architecture degree is one of the longest established interior programmes  in Europe, with many of its graduates going on to work all over the world in the construction sector.

The remaining educational talks will be held across a number of our Teesside-based developments including Scholars Rise, High Farm and Rose Cottage Farm.

Penelope concludes: “I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey once again for their support and I know our students are all looking forward to the next talk in the series!”

Acklam Hall currently offers a variety of four and five-bedroom homes.
