Brings the world of work alive in your classroom

What’s in a building?

This WOW Show Special looks at the construction jobs you may not even know existed – and how they fit with the more familiar trades you think you know about. 

You might be surprised. 

It takes everyone working together – just like a football team – to build homes, schools and hospitals as well as the environmentally friendly office and science facilities we visited at Harwell Science and Innovation Campus. 

What’s in a building? – short version

 In this short version of our film we meet four young apprentices working in some of the roles that are most in demand in the UK construction sector.

We see what they do every day and hear about their jobs.
