In White City Estate London, where the Ark Burlington Danes Academy continues to outshine and exceed exam expectations, despite the difficulties faced by the families and students here, ITW Construction Products is stepping in alongside many other industry names to launch a vocational project like no other in the city.

From the ground up, within the grounds of the school, pupils of the school will build a complete, comfortable, highly insulated house, with the prospect of inspiring apprenticeships and developing legitimate trade skills.

Paslode has donated one of their top of the range IM360Ci Lithium Framing Nailers and all associated fixings to support the timber frame construction. Following that, also provided by Paslode is an IM65 16 Gauge Brad Nailer, for the interior fit out and second-fix applications. These Lithium Tools are the industry leading approach to modern timber to timber construction, and the perfect models for young aspiring tradespeople to learn to use.

Equally as important to this financial contribution is the training Paslode are providing. With full training on the tools, from both a health and safety aspect, and on the correct utilisation of all the features and benefits of Paslode technology, ITWCP are making a solid investment in these young students and helping train the next generation of the timber construction industry.
