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.

Final Year students on Building Surveying BSc(Hons) are working with Brighton and Hove City Council to deliver ideas to restore the iconic Madeira Parade Arches and to assess the suitability of their use for commercial restoration.
BHCC have crowd funded £450,000 for the refurbishment of 3 of the arches which includes preserving the oldest and longest green wall in Europe.

Final year students from across our Geography, Geology, Environmental Sciences, Civil Engineering, and Chemistry courses took a trip to the beach this week to collect grab samples of bathing water from seven sites between Brighton Palace Pier and Brighton Marina.
The trip was part of a water and health module and was to look at how water quality varies.

Lecturers from our school, Della Madgwick, Dr Ruoyo Jin and Dr Mahmood Alam, travelled to Debrecen, Eastern Hungary in September to meet with Dr Kalmar Ferenc and his colleagues at our Partner University to discuss plans for our Solar decathlon project. Read More →
