On Wednesday 19th December, the KEHS engineering team attended a residential workshop at the University of Birmingham as part of the Engineering Education Scheme. Their task was to create a scale model of their design. The students set to work almost immediately, benefitting from the resources at the university’s Civil Engineering Lab. Supporting engineers from ARUP worked with the students closely in order to help them overcome the challenges which arose, including issues with the construction of a 12 storey Class A office block, which resulted in regular modifications to their building plan. The students found they needed to revise the dimensions of their building as a result of the construction materials they were using. After two days of working on the project the students successfully completed the assembly of a model based on their proposal for a multi-storey building. They would like to thank Mrs Hall for organising this valuable experience and accompanying them!
