Construction Degree students visit London’s first ever Cruise Terminal

In July 2014, a group of Construction Degree students, as part of their residential visit to London South Bank University were able to explore the £280million Enderby Wharf Development located on the River Thames between Greenwich and the O2.  It comprises 616 luxury riverside apartments and Central London’s first ever cruise terminal.  The visit was extremely informative and thanks must be given to Barratt London, David Margason and Paul Ellison for giving the students the opportunity to view this cutting edge development as well as their hospitality on the day.  The photo shows the students and members of staff from London South Bank University and Highlands College all suitably attired in personal protective equipment!  It is hoped that this visit may be repeated again during the next residential in two years’ time to view the progress of this very exciting development.
