Come and view a selection of the gems in our archive. Collected over the College’s 50 year history we have textbooks, journals and product catalogues which illustrate the development of the construction industry over the last century. Discover changes in equipment, technology, safe working practices and last but not least construction site fashions. Our oldest item, published circa 1867 is the snappily titled “Modern building and architecture – a series of working drawings and practical designs including numerous examples from the Paris and Havre international exhibitions”. This enormous book has been professionally restored and features some beautiful illustrations.
