Civil Engineering & Construction with J N Bentley

In June 2017 J N Bentley commissioned a shoot to document civil engineering & construction projects at the Constructionarium at the National Construction College in Bircham Newton, Norfolk. Students from the University of Leeds worked in 3 teams, each tasked with a separate building project. Over the course of a week, Joe documented the various stages of the projects from action shots to planning meetings and more. Here is a brief selection of images showing the work on site:

The students were responsible for planning the work and delegating tasks:
