Topping Out at the Skills Academy


Skills Academy Topping Out


Dawn donned her hard-hat on Friday morning, to help celebrate the ‘topping-out’ ceremony at the South Bristol Skills Academy.

Topping out is an historical tradition, which occurs when a building has reached its highest point.  Work on internal fixtures and decoration can now start, with the college ready for students next year. 

Dawn says: "the Skills Academy is an absolutely vital part of the Hengrove Park project as a whole, and will provide a fantastic range of vocational courses.  These courses will be particularly beneficial to younger people, but also for people who may have lost their job during the recession and want to learn a new trade.  We need to continue to work hard to tackle youth unemployment, and I am confident that the Skills Academy will provide fantastic support for young people in our city."

Designed and built by Tangent Snowball. Hosted by Rackspace, 2 Longwalk Road, Stockley Park, Uxbridge, UB11 1BA.
