Hautlieu DEC! students benefit from 40 hours of Industry Adopter visits

The school report is in, and the Our Hospital Project (OHP) team can be proud of its 100% attendance! In the first 20 weeks of this academic year, the team contributed on average two hours a week to the DEC! course and students at Hautlieu. Through Covid restrictions and hectic work schedules, OHP team members from local and global firms have attended every scheduled classroom session, at times in-person and otherwise on-screen. That’s a total of 40 hours invested in Jersey’s young people and its future. 

So far, the Year 10 and Year 12 students have benefited from the time contributed by the following organisations, who are working on the Our Hospital Project:
- ROK FCC JV the design and delivery partner
- Arup
- Government of Jersey
- Llewelyn Davies
- Mace
- Morris Architects
- Nurture Ecology
- ROK Limited
- Soundings
- Tillyard
- TNG Consulting Engineers
- Turner Townsend

RokFCC JV's Legacy Director, Richard de Gruchy: “I’m very proud of the OHP teams contribution to the DEC! course at Hautlieu. Our solid attendance record reflects how much the OHP team members genuinely value and enjoy contributing their time to the DEC! programme. We’re hopefully giving these youngsters a slight edge in their careers via the industry insights from subject matter specialists, who have spent years honing their craft. I would encourage any students or parents of students interested in DEC! to reach out to Mr Forestiero or Hautlieu School – it’s great way to enter the built environment industry.”
