New aerospace college at Biggin Hill


Planning permission has been granted for the new London Aerospace and Technology College at London Biggin Hill Airport.

To be built by Richard Hopkinson Architects at a cost of £11m (US$13.5m), the new facility is a collaboration between LoCate and London South East Colleges, with £6.2m (US$7.6m) of funding provided by the Greater London Authority.

The new 2,100m2 (22,600ft2) space will offer training facilities for aerospace technicians, with specialist workshops and a double-height ‘hangar’ space, which will enable trainees to work on large-scale aircraft components in real-world working conditions.

The college, which is expected to open in September 2020, will be built on an existing brownfield site.
