(PRWeb UK) October 18, 2010
A contract of £6 million has been awarded to VolkerFitzpatrick by Crossrail. They will be in charge of the construction of the building for their Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy (TUCA).
The Academy will be located in East London, more precisely at Aldersbrook Sidings on the border of Redbridge and Newham, and its construction will begin in November 2010. Its main purpose will be to offer training to at least 3500 people in the underground construction over the whole lifetime of this interesting project.
At the moment the enabling works are taking place at the site in preparation for the main construction works that are due to start very soon.
The Academy will start offering their training services next spring and the building is expected to be fully open and operative by summer next year.
“During these times of job market crisis it is important to provide the tools people need in order to get jobs and Crossrail is showing its commitment by creating this Academy,” said the Managing Director of The Uk Knack Group Executive Career Consultancy.
Terry Morgan, chairman of Crossrail, has clearly stated that the company is not only committed to delivering additional rail capacity but also to play an important role in supporting UK economy. It is a vital part of the company’s approach to construction to ensure that Londoners have access to job opportunities and to provide them with the skills that are required for those jobs. It is expected that the contractors working together with Crossrail will hire local people and it is very likely that most of those people will take training courses at TUCA.
