Constructionarium Scotland Ltd
Established over ten years ago, Constructionarium Scotland provides a “hands-on” construction experience for students and professionals; where participants construct scaled down versions of bridges, buildings, dams and civil engineering projects from all around the world. The principle is to link academic institutes with industry and to ensure that the students are able to apply the knowledge they have gained in a practical, safe and relevant environment.
As part of the PEETS project students will work with Constructionarium Scotland and will spend three days on site constructing a wind farm.
