Pupils from a primary school in West Lothian have been given an exciting opportunity to adopt a plot at our Seton Park development in Winchburgh.
Youngsters in Years 5 and 6 at Winchburgh Primary School have been invited to explore our neighbouring development for three site visits to learn all about how a house is built.
The first visit introduced the schoolchildren to the initial foundation stage of construction, which was explained to them by Site Manager Mike Mullen.
Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, says: “We are delighted to be able to welcome the pupils from Winchburgh Primary School along to Seton Park for an exciting insight into the build process of a Taylor Wimpey home.
“I hope the children enjoyed the first visit and that they are looking forward to seeing the house transform before their very eyes!”
The next visit to Seton Park is due to take place in the next couple of months, where the pupils will learn all about the sub-structure stage of construction when the roof is on, scaffolding is down and the internal walls have been installed, before they pay one final visit around June time to see the finished home in all its glory.
Class teacher Alison Hannah says: “Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Taylor Wimpey’s construction site, asking lots of questions and learning about the building process. They discussed the dangers of a building site with Mike and his team, and what they need to do to stay safe near the site.
“They are very much looking forward to going back to see the inside of the house when the roof is on, and again before the summer holidays, although they will be disappointed that there will not be as much mud to squelch in!”
Seton Park currently offers a superb selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties.
