We were delighted to share our new VR headset training programmes with Castlebrae High School as part of Scottish Careers Week. The new headsets, developed alongside Skills Development Scotland put users at the centre of construction sites meaning children were able to experience the live construction environment without having to leave the classroom!
At Balfour Beatty, we recognise the important role that the construction and infrastructure sector have to play in achieving Net Zero. That is why we have partnered with the Supply Chain Sustainability School for the second year in a row, undertaking a joint survey targeting hundreds of supply chain partners across the UK.
As part of our journey towards a zero carbon construction site plan, we’ve developed a set of principles to help implement low carbon approaches across our sites. Watch our animation to find out more: https://youtu.be/JcPOm58gRro
