Following the success of the first GC House renovation project, we have now collected the keys to our next property, to be worked on by GC construction and building services students as part of their training.

GC House no.2 is a large three bedroom property on Porchester Road in Hucclecote, Gloucester.

Before we begin working with our students on the property, we need to remove the asbestos (which is around the soil stack) and make the electrical supply safe to work on. So we're currently busy planning this and getting the relevant health and safety information together, along with a programme of work. We expect all of this to be complete and work with the students to start in a couple of weeks.

For this second project, we will also be taking on a construction apprentice, who will have their work assessed on-site.

We will shortly be approaching our partner suppliers for donations of materials and any help they can give us, as they so kindly did for our first project.

If you or your business can offer us any help in the form of materials, discounts or expertise please contact Project Manager, Rachael Capener: rachael.capener@gloscol.ac.uk
