ONCE he went there for his education - now he is building on top of it!

Luke Pantling studied his National Construction Diploma at Doncaster College, on the site that is currently being redeveloped to make way for the town’s new civic offices.

Now he has just got a job as a graduate recruit helping to build offices on top of his old classrooms.

The 23-year-old has just been appointed by Wates Construction as a commercial trainee.

He will be working on the construction of the five-storey 157,500 sq ft office building in the new Civic and Cultural Quarter.

He said: “This is a great opportunity for me and exactly what I was looking for, having completed my Building Surveying degree last year.

“The fact that I am going to be starting my career developing the very place where I began my construction training is particularly interesting!

“I can’t wait to get started.”

Luke’s former construction lecturer at Doncaster College, Alan Hardy, said: “It’s a nice touch that he’s working on the old Doncaster College site at Waterdale.”
