Genesis Centre

The Genesis Centre is a £2.5-million educational resource funded by the South West of England Regional Development Agency (RDA) and the Learning and Skills Council. It grew out of a student project to establish a learning centre that shares the latest innovations in construction and engineering.

Since opening, we’ve hosted a wide variety of visitors including school children, FE and HE students, construction industry professionals and interested non-specialists. Through our activities, we’re helping to meet the regional skills agenda and establishing engineering as a popular career pathway for men and women in the South West.

As a sustainable building that makes effective use of recycled materials and cutting-edge construction techniques, the Genesis Centre provides a visible illustration of the potential of new technology to reshape the world.
