Environmental considerations must be at the heart of modern construction work, but it can be difficult to digest this complex information.

See the examples below for how one site addressed this:

  • Esh Build received funding from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to produce a ‘Carbon Coach’ online training course for young construction workers.
  • The course, largely aimed at apprentices, seeks to provide the knowledge and skills to understand and overcome the key issues arising from climate change by making climate change relevant to the day to day activities of construction professionals. The course covers the theory of climate change through to how to read an energy meter.
  • The four modules of the course are: Climate Change, Energy, Low Carbon Design and Energy Management.
  • This project is unique in that it is wholly site inspired and developed by a contractor.

By making climate information accessible and easy to comprehend, this initiative ensures the next generation of construction workers understand the basics of carbon science and are prepared to implement this knowledge on site.
