Building Education & Charity
Mammoth Insulation supported the learning of UCol Wairarapa students in building a Charity House that was auctioned recently.
This year UCOL Wairarapa carpentry students undertook a project as part of their Level 4 Carpentry course to build a three bedroom house for charity in conjunction with Mitre 10 Mega Masterton and the Dugdale Trust. The Charity House was auctioned recently with the profits going to Life Flight Trust and Martinborough Plunket.
UCOL’s Construction Programme Coordinator Brett Tickner said “Our trades students get to work on a full scale construction job and the sponsors and industry partners get a platform to showcase their products and services. It’s a real win-win situation.”
The involvement of Mammoth supported the learning of the next generation of builders and gave them an understanding of modern insulation practices and materials. "We were thrilled to be involved" says Mammoth's Justin Grimshaw "as it gave students an opportunity to work with polyester insulation and experience its benefits first hand. Polyester insulation is a soft non-irritant insulation which doesn't require the wearing of protective clothing, masks, goggles and gloves so it was easy for the students to work with."
