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!
