KLC has established a valuable industry relationship with construction project management company, Broseley.
Broseley, established in 1973, provide a construction project management service in South West London for private clients and their residential properties. This includes bespoke building, planning, design and project management. Take a look at their website to explore more of their services and portfolio here!
Broseley generously provide access to a variety of live sites to our Diploma HE Interior Design students throughout their courses. On site, the ever patient Martin (site manager for Broseley) walks and talks students through the property. He explains design intent but just as importantly, demonstrates the realities of project management.
Senior Course Tutor, Sam Miller, shared her thoughts, “This is hugely valuable industry partnership and experience from a teaching perspective, as students can be shown first-hand the relationship between design and construction. Students are given the opportunity to explore the entire site and look through technical drawing packages whilst KLC tutors and Martin link the practical visit with classroom learning. For this site visit, students saw the construction phases for lathe and plaster walls, under floor heating, ground floor tanking and we talked through the intricacies of navigating listed building consents with a client’s design hopes. We are hoping to visit the site again next term to see how the project has progressed.”
Spokesperson for Broseley shared the following, “We were delighted to welcome three groups of students from KLC School of Design earlier this month to one of their Chelsea sites. The property is undergoing a total refurbishment and this gave the students the opportunity to see the very bones of the place and how our builders are tackling the project. The visit was led by our award winning Project Manager, Martin Meayers, who explained the various processes and the details of the drawings. Commented Martin “We like to support and encourage young designers, and the students are always very receptive and keen to learn”
Thanks to Broseley for their ongoing support and valued industry knowledge provided to our students.
