The term ‘built environment’ refers to the human-made surroundings that provide the setting for human activity, ranging in scale from buildings to parks and infrastructure networks.

It has been defined as “the human-made space in which people live, work, and recreate on a day-to-day basis,” and is directly linked to the construction industry within the professional, technical, craft and engineering trade sectors.

Looking towards the future, the construction industry is becoming more sustainable by creating new disciplines such as: urban design; renewable technology; materials engineering; and environmental building science.

Practical experience is gained from site visits, field trips and laboratory workshops.

The Scottish Government aims to increase sustainable economic growth - through legislation, policies actions and decisions on architecture and place making, buildingstandards and planning.
