Have a look around some of the Built Environment facilities at Perth College UHI
The term built environment refers to the human-made surroundings that provide the setting for human activity, ranging in scale from buildings to parks and infrastructure networks.
It has been defined as “the human-made space in which people live, work, and recreate on a day-to-day basis.”
The built environment is directly linked to the construction industry within the professional, technical, craft and engineering trade sectors.
Looking towards the future, the construction industry is becoming more sustainable by creating new disciplines such as: urban design; renewable technology; materials engineering; and environmental building science.
The Scottish Government aims to increase sustainable economic growth - through legislation, policies actions and decisions on architecture and place making, building standards and planning.
Perth College UHI is fully focused on training the next generation of built environment professionals, enhancing our students skills and abilities, preparing learners for employment within the construction industry sector.
Mainly taught within a classroom environment, practical experience is gained from site visits, field trips and laboratory workshops.
