The Education Hub offers a wide selection of engaging activities and educational resources for different age groups. The Hub includes videos, quizzes, case studies, activities and career explorers, from Go Construct, The BBC and our construction partners.

There is a dedicated section for ‘Parents and Teachers’ to help make it easier to promote construction as a career of choice.

Opening in the Summer of 2021 it includes three pools, a gym and two fitness studios, health suite and spa facility, children’s soft play area and a café.

Careers in Construction – ‘St Sidwell’s Point’ Leisure Centre

The Nightingale Hospital in Exeter was built in just 57 days, to accommodate patients with COVID-19 during the global pandemic and is now being used as a diagnostic centre and support facility for the RD&E.

This short film has been created to showcase the variety of careers in the Nightingale Hospital’s construction and how different roles have been used to build a prominent structure in the local area.

The quick time to complete the build was possible due to the teamwork of all those involved and this short film includes three of the key companies involved in the design and build, BAM, SDS and TClarke.
