How do you go about building the UK’s largest concrete dome? Join Kier Construction’s Building Site Manager to find out in this brand new talk all about our First Light Pavilion, Jodrell Bank’s latest transformative project.
In this 30 minute outdoor talk, you’ll delve into the nitty gritty of construction and learn all about the unique challenges that have arisen during the building of this innovative new pavilion.
Explore the look and feel of the materials used in the project, and for those who are curious about the environmental impact, learn about the precautions taken to protect our local wildlife.
Finally, at the end of the tour, you will be given the chance to view the building from our spectacular viewing platform, which overlooks the entire ground-breaking project.*
Capacity is limited and places will be issued on the day on a first-come-first-served basis. Please book your place at the ticket booth upon arrival.
Suitable for ages 5+
- Please note that access to the viewing platform is via a steep set of stairs and so may be unsuitable for those with a fear of heights or mobility issues.
