Students from Brentford School for Girls were given a tour of St George's Kew Bridge development last week after being invited for a day of insight into the construction industry last Monday.

Eighteen Year 8 students, were given an overview of the multiple stages of Kew Bridge's construction process, from development to design, as work onsite continued following the latest phase launch of Quayside House.

Senior staff from St George provided the students with an understanding of the diverse skills required in creating new homes, from painting to plastering, interior design and sales.

The tour of Kew Bridge concluded with the students exploring a show apartment to understand the various elements of interior design, observing how colours, textures and fittings interact with one another, as well as how architects had capitalised on Kew Bridge's Thames-side views of Kew Botanical Gardens in their layout of the apartments.

Liz Gers, Community Coordinator for Brentford School for Girls, commented: "The visit to St George was fantastic, the careers talk was very informative for the girls. We are looking forward to the next visit already."

Ian Dobie, Managing Director of St George West London said: "Our industry is incredibly varied with a vast range of skills required, and I'm delighted that the students showed so much interest. Women have a vital role to play in the housebuilding industry, and I hope the day will help encourage more female students to look closer at potentially joining it."

Kew Bridge is a mixed-use development comprising 308 one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses that combines views of the River Thames and Royal Botanic Gardens with great transport links to and from the city of London. The latest phase Quayside offers apartments for sale from £684,950.
