LREF School Engagement Programme

We took part in The London Real Estate Forum's (LREF) School Engagement programme, promoting diversity and accessibility across the industry as part of G&T's NewGen initiative. The day provided a unique opportunity for young professionals to engage and inspire a new cohort of city change makers.

Bringing career opportunities to life through an engaging workshop, assistant surveyor Danny Bloom and senior project manager Louisa Whittaker offered their insights as cost and project managers, helping Year 9 & 10 students from Swanlea School and Forest Gate Community School imagine their dream workspace.

After sharing their briefs with the other groups, the students had the chance to build a real life model with the help of industry volunteers, before awards were presented for the most 'Innovative Idea' and 'Best Structure' in the striking Barbican Conservatory.
