Students from Edinburgh Napier University’s Civil Engineering Society got an exclusive first look at Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall redevelopment on a recent site visit.
The seven undergraduates gained valuable insight and knowledge into the construction of the city landmark, currently undergoing a full transformation. They were given a full site tour and were taken through the plans for the renovation. Edinburgh Napier students Daaoud Shafi and Joe Derham set up the visit with peers from the university’s Civil Engineering Society. Daaoud had previously completed two summer placements with subcontractor Crummock who are currently on-site.
Daaoud Shafi said, “This is the first site the Civil Engineering Society has visited and as a substantial project for Crummock and McLaughlin & Harvey, it’s a great opportunity for the group to get out of the classroom, see things in practice and understand the engineering behind the refurbishment.”
