Images in technical library grows to over 1000

- 1 January 2010

The technical gallery on Country & Towns website now contains over 1000 plumbing, electrical and maintenance photographs. The aim of the gallery is to provide technical students with a source of reference material and contains images showing a variety of jobs in the; before, during and after stages.

“We started building the library over two years ago,” said Chris Tomlinson. “The initial request was made by a lecturer in a technical college who said that his students had difficulty relating drawing in books to actual installations.”

The gallery is now divided into eight sections including plumbing, electrical, building and finishing and commercial. The most popular part of the gallery is the faults section. This contains photos of many of the faults that Country & Town have come across on a day to day basis.

“The fault pages are definitely the part of the gallery that students appreciate the most,” said Chris. “This section of the gallery contains evidence of some shocking workmanship, dangerous situations and very dated equipment that should have been replaced long ago. It allows students to become familiar with what they will be faced with when they start work”

Country & Town Limited encourages organisations involved in providing education and training to students studying for electrical, plumbing and gas qualifications to establish links to their website. These organisations do not have to ask permission to link directly to pages hosted on the site. Educational and training organisations will be granted, on request, permission to reproduce and use any of any of the images on the site when these images are used as part of an education or training programme.
