Brick donation story

Lee Marley, one of the UK’s leading integrated façade subcontractors donated 13,000 Janinhoff bricks to West London Construction Academy to support the development of the next generation of construction professionals.

West London College works with construction industry employers to prepare learners and apprentices for employment opportunities and career progression in the sector. The donation will enable learners to put their skills into practice with high-quality materials and state-of-the-art technology.

Sumit Gurung, Managing Director at Lee Marley, started his career as a Bricklaying Apprentice. He said:

“Lee Marley has a passion for apprenticeships, we have a firm belief in the need to develop the next generation of bricklayers, scaffolders, stone masons and steel fixers.

“Modern methods of construction are continually evolving, so to ensure that the workforce of the future is equipped with the skills to adapt in a fast-changing environment, it is essential that we partner with organisations like West London Construction Academy to fulfil this objective.”
