Sustainable Communities CREST Challenge - Bronze Level

Activity Name:
Sustainable Communities CREST Challenge – Bronze Level 

Activity Descriptor: 
Sustainable Communities CREST Challenge is an exciting and rewarding team activity where participants must plan a sustainable housing development.

To get off to the best start possible, we recommend the project should ideally commence with a ‘live’ site visit.

Participants need to be supported in their work by a mentor. This person can be from industry or alternatively could be an activity leader or a group leader.

Activity Aims: CREST Awards aim to raise awareness of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) amongst young people and to highlight which careers in construction are linked to these subjects.

By the end of the project participants should have produced a team proposal for their housing development and an individual reflective report on what they have learned during the process. They should also outline each individual’s role within the team and how the roles complemented each other whilst defining and finalising the team’s proposal.


Audience: (Recommended Age) 11-16 years

Group Size: The group size is unrestricted overall, but construction companies hosting site visits may need to restrict numbers accessing a ‘live’ site at a given time. Plan ahead to ensure visits are well planned and thought out.
