Mr Roe said, 'We are absolutely delighted to have been guests of the Rt. Honourable. Lord Paul of Marylebone and the University of Wolverhampton. It is fantastic to hear that over a quarter of a billion pounds of investment is going into this project and that will ultimately translate into our region being key in developing the very best talent both in the construction and brownfield regeneration sectors. As a local business, we are already engaged with the university on many levels in terms of offering placements, sponsorships and awards as well as guest lecturing and we look forward to strengthening this relationship even further.'

Dunton Environmental, which operates a treatment hub in Wolverhampton to service regeneration in the Black Country and the Midlands, maintains a special relationship with the University of Wolverhampton. The relationship has seen Dunton offer summer placements, yearlong placements, guest lecturing and awards to students from the university.
