Students at West Thames College Skills & Logistics Centre have been working on an exciting project that has seen them build and paint a large kiosk. The kiosk will be in use at the Southbank in London over the summer. 

The project was commissioned by Daniel Gently, who owns Elephant Juice Bar.

The structure was built by Level one and two Carpentry students, using responsibly sourced, sustainable materials and then decorated by Level one Painting & Decorating students. The project was over seen by Chris Larkin (Carpentry Lecture) and David Bennet (Painting & Decorating Lecturer), with assistance from Yaroslav Polishchuck.

The whole project took six weeks to complete from planning and construction to transportation from the Skills & Logistics Centre, based at the college’s Feltham Campus, to the South Bank.

Students learned a variety of skills including, planning, interpreting detail from drawings, manual handling and transportation logistics.

You can see the kiosk at the Southbank and while you’re there why not grab yourself a drink from the juice bar.
