A group of students from the National Certificate in Civil Engineering Class at Dundee & Angus College recently visited the site of the New Premier Inn Hotel, Dundee Central.
The students and course lecturer, Kevin Mill, were met on site by Ogilvie Construction Senior Site Manager, Stephen Mackie who gave an overview of the project. This was followed up by a guided tour of the site, by Scott Robertson, Site Manager and Billy Sutherland, Ground Works Supervisor. The students then had the chance to ask questions and project interfaces were looked at in detail.
Lecturer Kevin Mill said of Ogilvie Construction "Because of your efforts and professionalism, our experience could not have been better. All or your employees were extremely courteous and went out of their way to explain various functions and answered any questions the students asked about the project. It's so important to us at the Dundee and Angus College from development aspects to encourage a learning approach which helps the students to make connections between the subject matter and the 'real world' of work or the profession, as this is invaluable to their studies and skills setting for future employees"
