Build Up Your Business

  • Blessed Hugh Fawley Road, Southcote, Reading RG30 3EP (map)

Build up your Business provides young people aged 15+ with the opportunity to learn about craft, technical design and management roles and employability skills within the Construction Industry. Up to 144 students in teams of 12 work through a business simulation to develop a piece of land in Reading,, construct a desktop building model and start a business idea. Working together in a different and challenging environment with business facilitators, to solve problems and make choices culminating in a finished project.  Under very tight budget and time constraints, they take on a business role such as Project Manager, Construction Manager, Architect, Environmental Officer and Quantity Surveyor amongst others, to create and present a successful business.
