Construction Inspiration Day

27th February 2018

Thirty children from Year 5 had the opportunity to attend a Construction Inspiration Day at the Boiler shop in Newcastle to learn all about exciting new technology including virtual scanners, drones, cloud computing and artificial intelligence. The children were then given a chance to use some of the new technology to design new homes and learnt how digital surveying and 3D/4D digital modelling works.
The children had workshop demonstrations from companies such as TopCon Positioning, Autodesk BIM360, LuminousVR, MetSec, FARO technologies, Galliford Try, Space Architects and Kykloud. This gave the children opportunity to look at careers available in the construction industry and how rewarding it can be.
