Careers Trip – Armstrong Downes Commercial site visit October 2020
During October 2020 we took a group of students with an interest in construction related trades for a site visit at an Armstrong Downes Commercial Ltd project under way in Queens Drive, Lower Hutt.
We originally met Tony Doile, company Director, at a Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce employer speed meet where he offered to host a tour for us and we quickly put it in place.
Tony walked us through the project and gave an overview of the many trades involved in commercial construction as well as training and career paths.
Our students gained a greater appreciation of the commercial construction industry and we very much appreciated Tony taking time out from his busy schedule to run the tour in person.
