For the third year running, the South West Branch has launched its Schools Eco-home Competition to local schools in Bristol, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and North Somerset. The competition is a key part of our drive to inspire young people, especially girls, to consider careers within the property and construction industry.

Year 9 students from across these regions have been invited to prepare designs and a written submission for the construction of an eco-home based on a plot at the Crest Nicholson Paintworks site in Bristol’s creative quarter. It is particularly rewarding to see what the ‘youth of today’ consider to be at the fore-front of design and what is meant by ‘sustainability’.
