Steelwork company opens its doors to graduates
Billington Structures and Shafton Steel Services (both part of Billington Holdings) welcomed a group of potential future engineers from Wates’ graduate scheme for a guided tour of their manufacturing facilities.
The graduates were given the opportunity to learn about Billington Structures’ production process for steel construction and were also able to see the steel processing and profiling services provided by Shafton Steel Services.
“It was a very informative presentation and factory visit and great to see our next generation absorbing the information.
“They are now more prepared to understand the process that Billingtons work through to get from tender to site, and how we as main contractors can influence how efficient that process can be in terms of time and money,” said Wates Project Director Dan Miller.
“We received a great insight into how steel frames are designed and fabricated. It was a very educational day for all of us new to the construction industry and we gained useful knowledge that will benefit us on future projects with steel frames,” said Wates site management graduate Charlene Sango.
