Future Home Design & Construction Higher National Certificate & Diploma

The Higher National Certificate in Future Home Design & Construction (MOBIE) will enable graduates to demonstrate a sound knowledge of new and emerging technologies and innovative strategies within the construction and built environment.

George Clarke (pictured above) is the founder of MOBIE (Ministry of Building, Innovation and Education) as well as being a well-known TV presenter and architect. MOBIE have had a significant input into the design of the course, drawing on their experiences of creating innovative and unique living spaces, with an emphasis on designs for homes of the future.

The ethos of MOBIE is about thinking differently. As George Clarke said: “Most houses are built in a fairly conventional way and MOBIE’s been set up to do something different to that.”

The course aims to address the need for significant skills within traditional and more mainstream disciplines such as building surveying, quantity surveying and construction management – which are crucial to enabling the vast majority of construction projects for the foreseeable future.
