About this event

Constructionarium provides a "hands-on" construction experience for students and professionals; where participants construct scaled down versions of bridges, buildings, dams and civil engineering projects from all around the world. The principle is to link academic institutes with industry and to ensure that the students are able to apply the knowledge they have gained in a practical, safe and relevant environment. It provides a practical platform through its portfolio of projects for students to apply their theoretical knowledge in a safe environment.

There will be two universities in attendance, with several projects under construction during the visit.

Attendees will need PPE (hard hat, googles, gloves, high vis jacket and safety boots). Some PEE will be available to borrow but please ensure you bring your own safety boots.

Meet onsite for 10.30 start. Please meet at the CITB reception.

Lunch will be provided.
