Barnes Construction ensured daily interface and weekly meetings with the site based Client as well as arranging monthly visits to site for the Client contacts based in Paris.
As part of our continued support to provide educational benefits to future graduates and pupils, we arranged for a Cambridge architectural student to visit the site as part of their studies. This experience enabled this particular pupil to have a hands-on approach and gain wider knowledge for their future career.
