Constructionarium have been awarded funding to install static and tracker solar panels at their site in Bircham Newton.
Constructionarium is a not-for-profit organisation providing experiential learning to students studying; and professionals working in, the built environment. Our core business enables delegates to join us for six days where they work in large teams to build a replica of iconic projects – such as The Gherkin, Millau Viaduct, Barcelona Tower etc. Our scaled replicas have a significant impact in supporting the curriculum delivered by HE and FE institutes, as well as delivering exceptional employability skills to students which are essential in making them job ready for a career in the construction industry and new professionals emerging into the industry.
This funding has enabled Constructionarium to takes it’s first steps in offering practical NetZero education and training to not only students in the East Anglia region who will receive immediate benefit to support their current learning and enable them to gain practical and employability skills. It will also provide educational to small businesses and local communities on the benefits of solar technology. It will enable individuals to gain an appreciation and knowledge, so they can understand the technology and ask the right questions of solar technology suppliers.
In keeping with it’s #KeepItLocal ethos, Constructionarium are using a local supplier The Solar Shed to supply the equipment.
Constructionarium would like to thank the Borough Council fo Kings Lynn & West Norfolk for their support with this project.
