Exciting news! ~ ICM collaboration for 2024+

The ICM is an open sharing collaborating professional body exploring the potential of the new era of emerging digital tools such as VR [Virtual Reality] and AI [Artificial Intelligence] ─ the ICM intends to explore with data scientists connected with The Alan Turing Institute for the creation of a pilot project to create interconnected Local Learning Hubs for the construction sector and all its diverse parts bringing together students of all levels with industry at all levels to provide immersive learning experiences ─ discovery of what 'good' looks like ─ and understanding what 'bad' looks like too! ─ and competently being able to prove how to define safe systems building trust!

ICM is setting to revolutionize the way that construction management is taught, giving students access to the latest technologies and available machine readable giving them every chance to develop their skills and knowledge in an exciting, interactive and immersive environment.

At the heart is open collaboration between industry and academia - using incredible technology typically as is demonstrated in XR Lab, which is a state-of-the-art facility that utilizes the latest in virtual reality and augmented reality technology to provide students with a unique learning experience. This lab allows students to explore and experience real-life construction projects in a virtual world, enabling them to gain an understanding of the complexities of the industry and familiarize themselves with the tools and techniques used in the construction process.  ICM has visited and met with Eastern College Group in 2023 - a testament to the commitment of both organisations to providing students with the best possible education going forward.  Further visits are planned through 2024 maintaining the promotion ...

Students will have access to the latest technology and have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a safe and secure environment ─ in time, ICM plans to develop ways to utilise this emerging new technology to enable existing trade operatives and professionals to gain valuable insights.

The XR Lab complex at West Suffolk College has extensive associated tech teaching facilities for such as coding and deep understanding of the future - particularly state-of-the-art 3D 'green studio' media production and advanced avatar and motion data capture etc. ... the ICM team were excited to be able to see and interface with students developing  their multi-media skills in a direct industry integration and shared experiences opening to meaningful work opportunities ...


ICM realise collaboration is a powerful force for good in the world, enabling multiple parties to work together in order to achieve greater results than they would have been able to do on their own.

This powerful partnership is driving forward the advancement of construction technologies, while ensuring that students and professionals alike have access to the very best in virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) training.

The ICM is committed to assist collaboratively in providing the highest quality educational experiences and resources to students and professionals in the industry.

Eastern College Group and West Suffolk College are providing a unique platform on which to innovate and explore the potentials of these emerging technologies. The XR Lab at West Suffolk College is already enabling students to get hands-on experience with the latest in construction technology, giving them the skills and knowledge they need to become the industry leaders of tomorrow.

This is an inspiring example of how we can come together to create something truly incredible

What is exactly XR - Extended Reality ...

Extended Reality or XR is going to be the high tech that will make us feel like we are living in the future. XR encompasses a conglomeration of

VR - Virtual Reality, AR - Augmented Reality and MR - Mixed Reality.
