Sydney office hosts Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College
To Celebrate the International Women In Engineering Day (INWED), our offices have been hosting students with an interest in STEM. Sydney welcomed six young women from Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College school this week, and set them a challenge to design a sustainable Community Centre.
The students formed two teams, and spent time with NDY engineers, learning what obstacles and challenges might present themselves in projects of this kind.
The students then presented their work, showcasing their problem solving skills.
The student challenge was to design and present a mixed-use community centre concept. The design concepts needed to consider:
- Environmental impacts
- Building user comfort
- Resource efficiency
- Community benefits
- Integration with surrounding community, infrastructure and transport.
