TWNY - Teeside Uni Partnership

We are thrilled to be building links with Teesside University by hosting a series of educational talks for students on its BA (Hons) Interior Architecture degree course at a number of our Middlesbrough-based developments.

The talks, which will begin next term, will demonstrate the various stages of construction, including foundation laying, mid-build and pre-completion.

Penelope Tiffney, senior lecturer in Spatial Design at Teesside University, comments: “We’re delighted that such a successful housebuilder like Taylor Wimpey is now a key part of our course.

“This will give the students first-hand knowledge of the residential construction sector, which will no doubt be invaluable to their overall degree experience.

“I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for their support on behalf of everybody from the School of Arts and Media – it truly will be a huge help for all of our students on the course.”

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.

Debbie Whittingham, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “This is a fantastic opportunity for both the students of Teesside University and for Taylor Wimpey to inspire the future homebuilders of the world.

“We have a number of developments in the region and cannot wait to kick start with our first educational talk at the beginning of next year.”

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