Visit to Shoreham Port for Sustainability Students
Students studying Principles of Sustainable Construction took their lecture room outside today with a visit to Shoreham Port.
Tony Parker the Director of Engineering took students on a tour of the facility telling them how renewable energy powers the pump room and about the innovative way the port is moving towards zero carbon. As well as looking at and listening to the wind turbines, they were able to view the pump room where water levels are maintained in the canal. Students also saw how the raw products used in construction such as timber, steel and construction start their on-shore journey in the UK.
