H+H UK supplies aircrete to help GCSE technology pupils in Kent develop design skills

A secondary school teacher in Kent has used aircrete building blocks to create intricately designed totem pole sculptures and to help GCSE pupils with their technology studies.

Totem pole

Pete Rowe, who teaches at Wrotham school, Sevenoaks, received the aircrete from H+H UK’s production plant at Borough Green.

The lightweight aircrete blocks are normally used widely in the construction industry to build insulated house walls, which are then usually covered internally by plaster and externally by either bricks or render.

However, year-10 pupils at Wrotham School have used them to develop their computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) skills for their GCSE technology course.

The totem poles have been made to order for friends' gardens.

Jenny Smith-Andrews, H+H UK marketing & communications manager, said: "Pete's art is unusual and looks delightful. It's a pleasure to be able to support Pete passing on his craft to benefit the pupils' design skills."
