Bircham Newton, Norfolk, England
Constructionarium occupies a 6 hectare site and has been specifically designed and built to provide a range of challenging teaching and learning conditions on a dedicated site within the National Construction College, Bircham Newton, Norfolk, PE31 6RH.
At present, there are 17 work areas including a scaled down river, a lake, stabilised flatlands, mountainous terrain, some dodgy areas of porous strata and high ground water. This provides realistic construction experiences.
The 2 acre site allows projects over and near water as well as dry projects to be undertaken. Not all projects are available at this site.
Meals and welfare facilities are provided on site. Accommodation is available in nearby hotels, so additional transport is a necessity.
Both Constructionarium sites can accommodate field surveying opportunities, which varies from the traditional surveying courses on offer as it can be tailor made to fit with current curriculum modules, along with bespoke learning opportunities.
