Our ties with Bovis Lend Lease have given our students
a great foundation to build on
The $470 million development of Charlestown Square in Newcastle is a huge project being undertaken by one of the world’s biggest project management, design and construction companies - Bovis Lend Lease. And as a result of our relationship with Bovis Lend Lease, our construction management students have been able to make site visits, examine detailed design documents and attend lectures by key project personnel.
The ongoing project offers students the opportunity to gain valuable, first-hand experience of a major project. Some students have even worked on site through a summer work experience program, and as a result, twelve of them have been offered permanent jobs working for Bovis Lend Lease.
We’ve also recruited some senior Bovis Lend Lease people to sit on our industry advisory panels which help shape our degrees. This will continue to help our students, even when the project is finished.
