The winning design from the ‘Next Generation Design Brum’ competition will be displayed at UK Construction Week’s Timber Expo.

The competition is set up to provide school students with a unique insight into the world of engineering and architecture professions.

This voluntary initiative, which is ran by Scale Rule, saw nine teams, over a two day workshop, asked to design a ‘fun outdoor pavilion’ which featured exclusively at Birmingham Weekender Festival last month.

The students, alongside a professional team of talented engineers, architects and designers from Arup, Curtins, Intervention Architecture and AKSward,  developed a design concept comprising of a dome like structure with a number of openings for access and light, with a focus on natural shapes and forms.

Nathan Garnett, Event Director at Media 10, which runs the show, said: “We’re proud to welcome Scale Rule to showcase a perfect example of collaboration by students, local authorities and the built environment profession.

“As a collective they are extremely passionate about inspiring the next generation of designers, something we support wholeheartedly and will be an area of focus at UK Construction Week. We hope that everyone gets an opportunity to see this remarkable structure in person at the Timber Expo.”

UK Construction Week will also play host to Construction Careers Week, which will be featuring big name industry brands including HS2, Thames Tideway, Morgan Sindall, Sir Robert McAlpine, Taylor Wimpey, Kier, as well as local authorities and housing associations and the UK’s leading architectural practices.

This is the perfect opportunity to explore career opportunities and roles with leading UK construction firms, plus visitors can also participate in over a hundred CPD accredited workshops free of charge.
