Digital Innovation: Construction

Led by Leeds College of Building, this project will develop new training provision which embeds digital skills into the specific trades and professional areas in the construction industry.

The project will develop a significant suite of interactive and new immersive skills in electrical, plastering, brick plumbing and joinery through the use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). In technical areas, digital surveying, hydraulics, sustainability measures such as Passive Haus technologies and acoustics will be explored.

This project will develop learners’ knowledge of the construction site environment in a controlled setting.
