Virtual Work Experience

During the coronavirus pandemic, ‘in-person’ work experience opportunities have been difficult to facilitate due to social distancing measures and an increased number of staff working from home.

Working closely with local school, Clapton Girls Academy, the project team was able to move the upcoming work experience session online. This involved the students participating in calls with various team members over the course of the week, learning more about different job roles and routes into the industry. The students were given a virtual site tour and an overview of the site progression using our site cameras.

The students were also given a task to design their own building for the 21 Moorfields plot, involving researching design ideas, considering sustainability, and using Google Sketch Up to complete a 3D model of their design, before presenting their ideas to SRM staff.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
