Advanced Construction Skills Centre

In September 2021 we are opening a £9m state-of-the-art construction facility in south Bristol. It will be a great place to study and provide students and employers with the skills needed for the future.

Providing modern specialist construction facilities, students can train in all areas of construction in order to develop the skills that employers will need in the years ahead.
