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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
