Simulation learning for the building and construction industry originated in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands, more than a decade ago. Its overwhelming success led to the opening of a second centre in the United Kingdom at Coventry.
A four year research project found that participating construction companies utilising simulation training achieved:
- Reductions in construction costs of up to 5 per cent
- Improvements in construction quality of up to 10 per cent
- Decreases in OHS incidents of up to 90 per cent.
Having witnessed the success of simulation training in Europe, Master Builders committed to bring the technology to Australia so that local businesses across the country could access a world-leading business solution.
The Building Leadership Simulation Centre (BLSC) is the product of this commitment. It is the centrepiece of our efforts to deliver new ways for building and construction companies to strengthen their business.
