locationNewcastle-upon-Tyne, UK


Desco was appointed to design the M&E services for this new ‘one stop shop’ for aviation training located at Newcastle International Airport. The scheme comprised the demolition of an existing aircraft engineering hangar and construction of a new facility to house Newcastle College’s Aviation Academy to support courses in aviation engineering and other airport and passenger handling skills, as well as higher education courses, delivered in partnership with Kingston University.  

The new build teaching facility comprises three storeys of teaching space to accommodate 100 students and features a training hangar with full aircraft mock-up facilities. Mezzanine floors to the teaching spaces overlook the workshop area giving students the opportunity to experience and work within a real-life engineering environment.
