Chloe Agg, Senior Engineer from our Birmingham office, has joined forces with two other female professionals, to write a fun and educational book about construction careers.
The book, titled “Who Built Our Eco-School”, is the brainchild of Sarah Davis, Chair of Women in Building Services Engineering (WiBSE) and will be illustrated by Caroline Robinson, and the text is all written by Chloe Agg.
“Who Built Our Eco-School” is aimed at children aged 4 -7 years old, with the view to open their eyes to the exciting and in depth world of construction. The book will include pop-ups and flaps. The aspiration of the three professionals, who have just formed Green Duck Publishing, is to ensure every primary school child will have the opportunity to read the book. They plan to start in March 2015 by supplying 10 books to each London primary school and the launch will coincide with Eco-Build 2015 and World Book Day on 5th March 2015.
The book’s creators are in discussion with several companies about funding, and are also in liaison with various industry bodies such as the IET, RIBA and the BBA, who look set to endorse it. The BBA has even assisted with the search for funding by posting a media pack out to all of their mailing list.

The book will also be crowd funded. If you would like to buy a copy for yourself (or your kids!), or would like to donate one or more to a school, please watch this space and we’ll soon be sharing the crowd funding website.
