Year 7 - Build a House Workshop

As part of Careers Week Year 7 students took part in a Build a House workshop in collaboration with Quattro Design Architects Ltd and Stroud District Council Planning Department.

The aim of the workshops was to show students that there was more to construction than plumbers and bricklayers. By working through the building of a house from concept through to competition, students experienced roles as diverse as interior design to project management. The highlight was the use of 3D imaging which allowed the students to 'walk through' the house and experience what it would be like to live in the house they were helping design. A huge thank you to Kate from Quattro and Andrew from SDC for arranging such an informative day for Year 7 students.
