Creagh Concrete was delighted to open the doors of its factories to six very enthusiastic technology students from Hessle High School in Hull along with their teacher, Donna Ward, Head of Technology Department.  Roy Perry, Senior Projects Manager of Galliford Try, Creagh’s client, also visited Creagh’s Head Office in Toome along with the group to view the design and manufacture of the new school in Hessle, Yorkshire.

After a very early morning flight and a breakfast at The Elk, Seamus McKeague, Managing Director;  Eunan Rafferty, Director and Ian Brogan, Director, welcomed the group with some history of Creagh Concrete and discussions on technology and manufacturing.

The students spent the morning with the Drawing Office team looking at how projects are designed, drawn and issued to the factory.  Students were shown how a 3D computer model of their new school is transformed into components being cast within the factory, inspected, and despatched.

Kitted out in PPE and after a health and safety talk, the group was then taken round several of the factories looking at how the components were made for the new Hessle High School.  Scribing their name in wet precast was the highlight for the day and this will form part of the school build.  Armed with Creagh goodie bags, hoodies and their own personalised Hessle high vis vests, they set off for their flight back to Leeds/Bradford.
