Engineering Plymouth was supported by 14 regional partners and over 30 contributing organisations and local schools. It was conceived as a project to galvanise the community as well as celebrate the civil engineering achievements that have transformed the city.

As part of the project local groups and residents worked with the film crew and local arts professionals to produce a series of dance portrait-films in locations such as Plymouth Breakwater and The Citadel. The aim was to reimagine the publics’ perception of Plymouth's built environment.


Engineering Plymouth aims to highlight that civil engineering is a rewarding and creative career and hopes to encourage the next generation to join the profession. 

Since the launch on 5th November school and university talks and screenings have been taking place. If you would like to organise a talk for your students and show the film please email engineeringplymouth@ice.org.uk
