Team Sub 30 have just completed the Oxfam Trailwalker Team Challenge.
The Oxfam Trailwalker is a 100km team challenge that originally started as a training exercise in 1981 for the elite Queen’s Gurkha Signals Regiment in Hong Kong. It has since grown into one of the world’s ultimate team events with almost 200,000 people taking part across the world in India, New Zealand, Spain, Japan, France, UK, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Hong Kong and Australia. The event in Australia requires teams of 4 people to journey through 100km of bush trail within 48 hours – no mean feat!
It was great to see a further boost to the offsite industry in the recently announced budget. The Government appears to have accepted that policy needs swinging towards offsite construction as the only realistic way to increase construction efficiency in the face of an ever increasing traditional skills shortage and a decreasing rate of productivity gain.
