Construction is a diverse industry that includes activities such as planning, design, construction, maintenance, operation (and disposal) of everything that has been built around us.  Construction output in the UK is more than £110 billion per annum and contributes 7% of GDP.  Approximately 60% of construction output is new build, whilst 40% is refurbishment and maintenance. The industry accounts for approximately 3 million jobs, 10% of total UK employment

At Coventry University the School of Energy, Construction and Environment (ECE) brings together the disciplines affecting the natural and built environment.  The lecturers are experts in their field and actively research best practice and new technologies.  The Research Centre for the Built and Natural Environment  investigates  adapting buildings and cities for climate change, modelling natural hazards and guiding reconstruction following disasters.

All this knowledge and educational expertise is available to input and advise on Construction courses in the simulation centre.

crowd safety

Through the use of virtual environments, such as festivals, stadia, shopping malls and transport hubs, we are able to simulate every facet of a live show, event or crowded public space - from the front line to the event control centre. The approach enables the testing of decision making of event professionals.

organisational resilience

When every decision matters, high-performing businesses need cutting-edge solutions to ensure their teams are prepared to face every kind of challenge. Whether the threat is intrinsic or extrinsic, realistic environments support the development of teams and plans, enabling organisations to feel confident that they are ready to manage the worst. From business continuity solutions to crisis management and leadership, simulation can provide the confidence that organisations and their investors need.

emergency responders

Combining the simulation centre and XVR On Screen Scene Simulation platform, we are able to examine both technical and non-technical skills across a huge range of scenarios. Through the use of the centre's facilities, different scales of incidents can be created to test staff at every stage of their career.

social media

Social Media and its impact is an important aspect of any business. In recognition of this, we can integrate it into any course. Using the new XVR Media management module we are able to replicate realistic media articles that enables participants how to deal with the media and public reactions in in live exercises.
