News, Workshop

The Faculty has run the Constructionarium for Construction students for the past 10 years – with great success.

The Constructionarium offers Year 2+ students a week at the CITB HQ in Norfolk building scale models of various structures, and is a fantastic opportunity to gain hands on experience of managing and constructing a real construction project, and will allow you to demonstrate valuable site experience on your CV.

Roles undertaken by the students include project management and planning, setting out, carpentry, steelwork and laying concrete.

This year the Constructionarium will be open to Architecture students!

The Constructionarium will run from Sunday 20 – Friday 25 May.

The cost will be capped at £75 per student and for this you will get transport, accommodation, and 3 meals a day.

Here’s a link to a couple of the time lapse videos of previous trips:

 

This year we will be constructing scale models of Ove Arup’s Brewery Wharf Bridge and Ravenspurn Oil Platform.

We now have the link available for you to make your £75 deposit which will secure your place and is all the financial contribution we require from yourselves.

We will have a pre-trip preparation day here at the University beforehand, and this is provisionally scheduled for Wednesday 16th May.

Should you wish to attend the field trip or have any questions, please email Sean Flynn at s.flynn@westminster.ac.uk with your full name and student number and use the link below to make your payment: https://store.westminster.ac.uk/product-catalogue/faculty-of-architecture-and-the-built-enviroment/field-trips/constructionarium-field-trip
