The London Field Trip 2017

...the first year students on the BSc Construction Project Management and the BSc Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management went on a field trip to London on Tuesday 28 February 2017.

The trip forms the core of the first year integrative project module and is an active learning experience based around visits to a number of active development sites and a self-guided walking tour around specific areas of London, including commercial, cultural and architectural attractions. The field trip and associated investigations feed into the group assignment for the module. This year the students visited three major development sites: Paddington Basin, King's Cross and The City of London. Join us on the site visits and click on the blue links for more information.
