Sustainability Challenge

PLEASE NOTE: Students in the areas of Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Coventry and Warwickshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire will be given priority.Fusion are a joint venture of three major construction companies, currently working with HS2 on their enabling works.

This sustainability challenge will enable you to understand more about working in the construction industry, and how sustainability plays a big part in how we do things.

We cover a wide range of activities, from the kinds of things you would expect in construction like civil engineering, to ecology work such as tree planting and creating new habitats, to digging trenches and uncovering archaeological artefacts, and everything in between.

You will hear from our Sustainability Advisor, who will tell you about their career journey and set you a selection of real challenges that we have faced within our project. These will be around things that we use within our project, that we’d like you to find a better way of doing.

You will then have a short session from our Innovation Champion who will give you tips and tricks for coming up with innovative solutions. For the rest of the day you will work in small groups with a Fusion advisor to support you. We want you to choose a challenge, and come up with a sustainable solution, or solutions, and present these back to us at the end of the day.
