Ogilvie showcases Clepington Primary art

Ogilvie Construction is showcasing the artistic talents of the children at Clepington Primary School in Dundee who drew pictures of their dream house for the nearby new build project in Eliza Street.

Children at the school sent in the drawings in a competition run by the construction company, who are building 40 new homes near the school for Hillcrest Housing Association.

Now all of the drawings have been collated by the company and made into poster collages displayed on the hoardings at the building site.

The company also presented Clepington Primary Head Teacher, Paula Cheghall, with large posters of the collages for display in the school.

Willie Bell, Project Manager, Ogilvie Construction said:

“We had a fantastic response to the drawing competition from the school kids and wanted to showcase all of their artistic talents for everyone to see.  We’ve worked closely with the school throughout the project to develop educational opportunities around the construction programme with Ogilvie staff doing talks in the school on building and engineering, as well as health and safety.”

Head teacher, Paula Cheghall added:

“The children have enjoyed watching the building rise in front of our playground and staff have used the opportunity to use the building as a learning opportunity within a real life context. Ogilvie Construction staff have been fantastic in their partnership working with the school, helping out with health and safety talks, maths input in relation to the world of work and science activities linked to materials used on site. Our School Fayre was also attended by Ogilvie Construction staff who donated a number of very generous prizes to aid school funds. ”

The development at Eliza street will create new social housing on a previously vacant site, providing 36 flats and 4 semi-detached homes.

Fiona Morrison, Hillcrest Group Deputy Chief Executive, said: “I’m delighted that there has been the opportunity to work with Clepington Primary and generate interest from pupils in our development. As the workforce of the future it’s fantastic to offer them this chance to find out more about building homes. The standard of the drawings was excellent and clearly there are some budding artists and architects within the school. The posters are a welcome addition to the site, brightening up the surroundings for passers-by.”
