Course overview
A freak storm has ripped through Anytown, forcing rough sleepers to find emergency shelter. It is your job as a young engineer to imagine repurposing an existing stadium into a sustainable outreach shelter, and write a newspaper article describing what you have done to provide sustainable shelter for those in need. 

In this DEC [Design Engineer Construct] Discover Award, you will "think like an engineer" and develop an article that includes information on six key themes: water, transport, structure, energy, waste and ground. 

This free, introductory course is suitable for learners of all ages, and provides a real-world scenario for you to practice your skills. Studying BIM at Exceptional BIM? Why not use this project to demonstrate what you have learned!
