The ‘Ty D Sites’ Series
Ty D Sites is an on-going series of books, written by Saheb Dhesi. Whilst giving an insight into how the logistics of a construction site is managed, it encourages a conversation with young readers about construction related themes and terms; on-site safety; road safety; the environment; fire safety; equality, diversity and inclusion. Hopefully it will inspire some of the next generation to be drawn towards an accessible and welcoming construction industry open to all regardless of gender, physical ability, race, religion, colour or creed.
Who stole the surveyor’s lunch?
Join construction Logistics Manager, Ty D Sites and his security team, led by Saad the Security Guard, on their investigation around site, to discover who stole the Surveyor’s lunch. Like the award winning first book in the series, this book also takes us through a number of interesting roles you will find on a construction site.
Cleaning floors and fixing doors
Join Ty D Sites, a construction site Logistics Manager, and his logistics team who work both on and off the site. The book talks us through the roles of each member of the team showing how they play a crucial part in helping with the construction of the project; in this particular example taking us on a journey of the installation of some doors required on the site.
We gave out the books as prizes
We gave out the books as prizes for competitions connected with Book Week. They were certainly very well received by the children who enjoyed the book and the colouring-in activities.

The children were able to make connections with the characters
The children thoroughly enjoyed ‘Ty D Sites’ so much so, they all wanted to become construction workers for the day. The children were able to make connections with the characters in the book and became excited to see people like themselves.
The book brought to our attention the many different roles needed to successfully operate a construction company, and how important teamwork is.

Bronte School were delighted to share ‘Ty D Sites’ with their pupils. We found it to be an engaging and entertaining way to showcase the logistics of a construction site and how it is managed. The many roles are explained in an inclusive way which will inspire the younger generation into a construction industry that is accessible and welcoming to all.

A good introduction to the world of construction and the many roles in the industry. Inclusion and diversity have been considered by the author and well executed by the Illustrator. All together a first class and engaging reading book for children.
