Kier project visits

Students on our construction and building courses have been enjoying fortnightly visits to the Kier Project, part of the University’s Big Build ambitious project on the Moulsecoomb campus, watching the progress of the multi-storey car park from the beginning.

It is particularly interesting to note Kier’s attitude to sustainability by viewing their water butt, recycling and composting facilities and even a bird feeding station placed adjacent to the site compound!

The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee launched an inquiry into Off-site Manufacture for Construction on 29 March 2018 (https://www.parliament.uk/off-site-manufacture-construction) and written evidences were invited to be submitted to the Committee.
“The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee report ‘Off-site manufacture for construction: Building for change’ states that the construction sector as it currently operates cannot meet the UK’s need for housing and may struggle to meet the need for infrastructure. Given that the UK already lags behind other countries in construction productivity, and is facing a labour shortage, the Government and the construction sector must urgently find solutions.”
