Lindsay Talks took center stage at the grand unveiling of Training Terrace in York last week. The highly anticipated reveal marked the official naming of the new fully to-scale artificial street built by Develop, with the winning entry from a public competition being “Training Terrace.”

Develop and JTL, who invested £500,000 into the construction of Training Terrace, along with CompEx, part of the JTL Group, organised the competition to find a suitable name for the street. The public had the opportunity to submit their suggestions from January 12th to February 28th. Ultimately, Shaun Gavin and Lindsay Talks emerged as the joint winners with their winning suggestion. Each received an equal share of £500 worth of Amazon gift vouchers.

Training Terrace; a fully to-scale artificial street

Situated adjacent to Develop’s training center in Huby, Training Terrace encompasses purpose-built houses, apartments, a café, and a confined spaces area. The street will serve as a hub for delivering a range of essential training programmes, including emergency response to gas incidents, excavation safety, cable avoidance, sewer jetting, and confined spaces entry.

A Name Chosen by Experts: Judging Panel’s Selection Process

The judging panel responsible for selecting the name consisted of senior members from across the JTL Group. They meticulously reviewed over 150 entries and eventually arrived at a shortlist of ten names, with “Training Terrace” standing out as the clear winner. The name is now immortalised on the street’s signage.
