Building Studies

Building Studies encompasses the professional side of the Construction Industry. With the rising demand for quality housing, house building is set to rise by 20.2% by 2018* and with increased housing comes the increased need to strengthen infrastructures. You could see yourself working on big construction projects including leisure buildings, office blocks, roads and retail facilities, which means there is going to be a high demand for Construction industry experts in our region and across the country.

You will study the technology of buildings, surveying in the field, sustainable construction, property law and building regulations which will include Science and Maths. There is also the option to study Computer Aided Design (CAD) as well as structural mechanics and building regulations and control.

Work experience with external companies and organisations is available and could see you doing practical tasks such as surveying and working on construction sites.

“I’d worked on a construction site as a placement so I contacted them to see if they would be able to find me any work and they offered me a placement as a Trainee Civil Engineer, while I came to the Grimsby Institute to study for the National Certificate.”

Danny’s goal is to become a Project Construction Manager and after studying at UCG and Sheffield Hallam he is well on his way to achieving his goal. Danny continued:
“This is the best opportunity I’ve ever had in my life. The tutors always make sure they’re available to help and I simply couldn’t have done any of this without them.”
