MAPPING COLOUR

We will be working alongside the BPIC network to encourage diversity in the built environment by targeting youths applying to higher education. We aim to design a pop-up exhibition booth that can be displayed in career events with informative graphics that show the level of diversity across the construction industry in major UK cities. We hope to inspire young professionals; showing them there is a place for them in the industry and how they might get into the built environment.

We are collaborating with Amos Simbo representative and also founder of BPIC Network. As well as establishing BPIC Network, Amos is also a Chartered Engineer and the founder of Winway Consultants.

BPIC (Black Professionals in Construction) Network is an organisation focused on uplifting and advancing black and ethnic minority professionals. Since officially being launched in September 2019 they have organised guidance, training and networking events specifically aimed at those in the industry as well as youth looking to join.

Through this events project we hope to help this network with informing and connecting aspiring students looking for a career in the built environment in a bold and engaging way. Some of the main aims of BPIC Network include:

-To empower and educate black and ethnic minority individuals
-To champion the importance of diversity
-To improve diversity in the construction and built environment
-To deliver solutions for participants that work in all areas of the industry

SUPPORT: We aim to give black, asian and ethnic minority youths the platform and support to get into the built environment industry, helping to increase diversity across the industry, supporting equality, inclusivity and social mobility aims to benefit society.

LEARNING: Through our customized workshops and programme, our approach is to provide support and information to allow sixth form and undergraduate students to use our expertise to get the best outcomes for picking university subject choices relating to construction. We want to make a real difference in student’s lives by helping them to define the input and set up realistic goals to meet the requirements of the courses.

OPPORTUNITIES: We work with BPIC to help black, asian and ethnic minority students networking with professional organizations such as Black Females In Architecture (BFA) and Paradigm Network, providing information on jobs available in the construction industry and offer advice on alternative careers for the degree chosen.

EMPOWERMENT: We address not only technical success but social success, demonstrating a holistic and thoughtful approach to empower our black, asian and ethnic minority students community. Our blog posts will continue to monitor the impact of our research and knowledge as we strive to continuously learn and improve our approach.

This project encompasses a wide range of skills and activities for you to get involved with, as we aim to map out the levels of diversity across the UK construction industry, through the use of visual and graphical representations.

Our main output for this project is the development of an informative pop-up exhibition booth, which will be used to display the important research that we will unearth together. In the development of the exhibition booth, you will be given the option to create physical small-scale maquettes and larger scale mock-ups or choose to create these models digitally depending on your preference.

For the creation of our illustrations and graphics, we will primarily be working with:
Photoshop
InDesign
Illustrator

For the digital modelling of the pop-up exhibition booth, the 3D tools we will use are:
SketchUp
Rhino
Revit (on request)

We will organize graphic design workshops to help hone your skills using the aforementioned software, while also providing you with the opportunity to learn and develop new skills that will aid you in both your academic and professional career. During our time together, you will also be given the opportunity to network with professionals from the BPIC network and other associated professional organisations.

As the start of MSA Live 2021 approaches, the team has been completing the necessary preparatory work to ensure a fun and successful two-week period. We have finalised the session plan, risk assessment, and poster design in March, with each team member playing an important part in the delivery of each task.

In this current stage, we have been organising the project workshops and our guest speakers, with a particular interest in speaking to BAME professionals who can provide us with a valuable insight into their experience of diversity within the construction industry, and the existing networks which exist to support this.

We are looking forward to the commencement of the project and we can’t wait to meet the rest of the team!
Posted 26 Apr 2021 23:04
The ultimate goal for our project is a pop-up exhibition booth containing the information collated and presented during the MSA Live workshops. This will provide relevant information and eye-catching visuals about the construction industry to interested parties, including (but not limited to) university students interested in continuing on in the construction industry and college students interested in studying a construction-based course at the university level. We aim to break down what to expect during their studies and in the professional world, what demographics are represented as well as the impact that they are able to make.
Posted 1 May 2021 20:04
Counting down to the start of MSA Live 2021, the team has been hard at work putting together the final touches in preparation for the two weeks of fulfilling work. We have been diligently confirming our lineup of events and speakers that will inspire, with each team member taking on an integral role in the organisation of the project.

At this stage, we have been delegating elements of the project among the project team to ensure the smooth running of the project. In addition, we have been fine-tuning the event lineup to ensure the seamless interaction of the students, as well as guest speakers at this time.

We are looking forward to the start of the project and we can’t wait to meet the rest of the team!

We are very excited to be running a recorded Q&A and open discussion with Tara on 12th May on the topic of 'Black and Asian representation in the built environment'. We will be delving into questions related to the experiences of and challenges faced by ethnic minorities. We look forward to hearing Tara's valuable input and holding an important discussion about the current state of the industry for BAME architects.
Posted 8 May 2021 18:11
As research is an integral part of our project, we have set up a series of tasks to gather and present the information collected in the first week of the project.
By honing research, graphic design, and presentation skills, we aim to collaboratively work within our team to compile the information and carry out internal presentations- with the relevant information on diversity and the built environment- which will feed into our final output.
Posted 8 May 2021 21:22
Modelmaking as an art lends itself to the event as we aim to craft a stand that will act as a physical representation of the research we have done and the information we have collected over the two-week period. Using CAD, laser cutting, and assembly, we aim to split into groups to work on the crafting of the booth in addition to the various graphics that will go into the booth setup.
Posted 8 May 2021 21:47
With one day to go, we are putting the final touches on the organisation of the event in preparation for the next two weeks. We're looking forward to meeting the other members of our team!

ETHNOGRAPHIC WALK TO KICK START RESEARCH WEEK

AFTER BELLA GAVE US A MORNING PRESENTATION ON ETHNOGRAPHY WITHIN RESEARCH, THE TEAM TOOK A 30-MINUTE WALK IN THE MORNING TO PRACTICE THESE OBSERVATIONAL TECHNICS, WHILE ADHERING TO GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES.

HERE IS OUR MIRO-BOARD TO SHOW OFF SOME OF THE INTERESTING FINDINGS!
Posted 11 May 2021 18:06
HIGHLIGHTS: DAY 2 ETHNOGRAPHIC WALK

We had many great examples of ethnography after yesterday's workshop, and we have selected a few examples just to show some of the excellent research that was done in a very short amount of time!

This study was produced by Zhustin of his local area in Bulgaria: 'I decided to focus on the whole neighbourhood, rather than on only one street. I observed many art installations and shops which suggests an area with a predominantly young working population.'
Posted 12 May 2021 07:54
HIGHLIGHTS: DAY 2 ETHNOGRAPHIC WALK

This study was produced by Katherine who is currently based in Manchester. She decided to observe and compare the diversity across two local construction sites. She found there to be predominantly White workers at the site, with a few Black workers too but very few Asian workers.
Posted 12 May 2021 08:03
HIGHLIGHTS: DAY 2 ETHNOGRAPHIC WALK

This study was produced by Aidiel who was observing a building estate in London. He noted that the wiremen were fixing an electrical cable, basic needs such as power were receiving immediate attention for maintenance and that the building was poorly attended. He then went on to document the type of cars to infer what the class demographic of the area might be.
Posted 12 May 2021 08:11
HIGHLIGHTS: DAY 2 ETHNOGRAPHIC WALK

A small snippet of the timelapse from Bella's ethographic study of her local area in Manchester. Her notes were: 'There are a couple of people walking in the area. They all have some form of backpack. The area is predominantly inhabited by students and young professionals and is close to the university and offices in the city centre.' From this she concluded that the people moving about were likely going to university or work.
Posted 12 May 2021 08:45
HIGHLIGHTS: DAY 2 ETHNOGRAPHIC WALK

One final snippet of yesterday's session before we begin Day 3. This study by Titi uses sketching and tallying to document the frequency of cyclists and people walking through a park in Manchester.
Posted 12 May 2021 09:00
It's day 3! We will start off the day by finalising yesterday's research task and following this, we will introduce research task 3.

Posted 13 May 2021 12:51
WHY I’M NO LONGER TALKING TO WHITE PEOPLE ABOUT RACE

To kick start the day, the team read the chapter ‘the system’ within the influential book by Reni Eddo-Lodge, Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race.
The team then split into groups to draw out common themes in relation to diversity and equality within the system, and from yesterday's Q&A with Tara. These themes included colour-blindness, institutional racism, positive discrimination, lack of role-models, tokenism, positive discrimination, and so much more; which can be applied to the construction industry and many others.

2011 DIVERSITY LEVELS ACROSS CONSTURCTION

Using Census Data, the team has been recording levels of diversity within different UK cities, and specific London Boroughs – through the collating of this research it can feed into our infographics for the exhibition booths, as well as inform us on the current trends and how it might translate into diversity levels of specific sectors. This may include Architecture, Civil Engineering, Planning, Landscape Architecture and so on.
So far, we have found quite low levels in diversity, especially in the North, but by making people more aware it can hopefully probe the construction industry to be more active about diversity and inclusivity.
Posted 14 May 2021 17:54
MAPPING ACTIVITY!

As well as large scale mapping, over the week the team has done a deep dive into sector levels of diversity. Particularly concerning Architects, Civil Engineers, Planners, Landscape Architects and Contractors across various cities. The Project team then commenced making maps to experiment how to represent the data successfully.

AND THATS A WRAP !!!

We have all thoroughly enjoyed our time during the MSALIVE, and it has been truly rewarding working together. To end the fantastic two weeks, the team played a casual game called 'STOP', where there were a lot of laughs and bonding. Thank you everyone for your participation and have an amazing summer!
