Gipping Construction played an excellent part in the Suffolk Skills Show 2015, their stand was wonderfully interactive and very welcoming. It was an excellent touch using one of their proven apprentices to engage with the young people visiting the show. Gipping provided fabulous insight to a career in the construction sector, and a definite asset to the Skills Show. We hope to see them again next year, and are sure they will continue to support, inspire and nurture any one lucky enough to be part of their wonderful team. Well done everyone at Gipping Construction
