Pupils from Penrhys Primary School visited one of Trivallis’ on-site housing developments in Porth.

Over 80 pupils, who ranged from aged 3 to 11, were shown around the Appletree Avenue construction site by Site Manager, Ken, and given an insight into the different elements that are involved in building homes.

Appletree Avenue will comprise of 14 affordable one- and two-bedroom homes, with design and construction works being carried out by WRW Construction.

Lara, aged 8, visited the site with her classmates. She said: “When I grow up I want to be an architect so I liked seeing what a house looks like when its being built.”

Pupils were given the opportunity to ask questions about the housebuilding process and learned about how scaffolding works and why it’s important to wear hard hats and hi-vis on site.

This visit forms part of Trivallis’ community engagement work in the area.

Lisa Roberts, Community Projects Officer at Trivallis, said: “We want to help build the aspirations of young people in our communities, too. It is so important to open young minds to the opportunities there are for work in the housing sector. A big thanks goes to WRW Construction for taking the time to show the pupils around the site and to the staff at Penrhys Primary School who have worked with us to make the visit possible.”
