Advanced Home Construction

**Summary**: Our HND Advanced Home Construction is part of a suite of courses - HNC, HND, BSc (Hons) (Top-up) and MSc awards. Each course is designed and developed adhering closely to TV architect George Clarke’s modular building concept and advanced home construction principles. **Course details**: George Clarke, architect and presenter of Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces and Restoration Man, has contributed to the design of the programmes and specialist facilities at Teesside University, providing you with the opportunity to develop your skills in designing, fabricating and constructing creative and innovative new homes. This course introduces you to new models of home design, fabrication and construction. It guides you through a detailed exploration of construction methods, such as using off-site manufacture and prefabrication, and alternative building materials, and the location of building projects. You have an opportunity to develop concept models and construct scale models of your designs in a specially designed facility at Teesside University’s main campus. George Clarke’s social enterprise, the Ministry of Building, Innovation and Education (MOBIE), is kickstarting a fundamental change to the building industry and our courses have been designed to adhere closely to the modular building concept and advanced home construction principles of MOBIE. **After the course**: The UK is facing a major housing crisis. There is a severe shortage of new homes and there are many, including children, living in temporary accommodation. Figures from the Empty Homes Agency put the number of vacant properties in England at 610,000, estimating that there is a need for an additional 200,000 homes a year to keep up with the growth in demand for households. This course helps prepare you for a career in home design and construction, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to bring creative and innovative new thinking to the home construction industry.
