City College Plymouth has undergone a major evolution within its Faculty of Construction. A recent refurbishment programme has seen the construction building receive major updating to create new, modern open plan workshops. The new layout provides an improved clustering of the trade spaces, which link to form the ‘Cowlin Trade Excellence Area’.
The newly refurbished facility has allowed us to look to the future and to those emerging markets and opportunities which are coming to the fore in renewable and low carbon technologies. As resources become ever more finite it is vital that we identify new processes and use new technologies within the construction sector to harness and harvest the planet’s natural resources.
City College Plymouth’s KNX Training Facility, has won the Contribution to Training category of the BCIA (Building Controls Industry Association) Awards. The BCIA awards were established to recognise and reward excellence in the building controls industry.
The ABB Energy Centre, which is located within the construction building, offers businesses the opportunity to up-skill their workforce in the growth area of renewable energy. Training on offer will include:
The increase in the use of, and the escalating interest in new technologies, is something we, as the largest training provider in the Plymouth travel-to-work area are very aware of. Working in partnership with industry leaders, the ABB Energy Centre will provide a central hub for the training and skilling of renewables in the South West and beyond.
