NSCG Newcastle College Education  – Semi-Permanent Workshop


NSCG Newcastle Campus, a college in Staffordshire, had a protracted requirement for additional workshop space due to an unprecedented number of students enrolling on their construction & brickwork courses.


With a brand-new workshop providing a total 75sqm of new space erected in just three days, students will benefit from an enhanced learning environment to develop and hone their skills. Despite a last minute decision by the college to press ahead with the project, the building was still ready in time for the start of the September term.

The 5m (W) x 15 (L) x 3m (H) size of the structure may be on the smaller end of the projects that Spaciotempo install but will prove to be mightily valuable because the semi-permanent structure, which was purchased by the college, will serve multiple purposes throughout its lifespan.

In the short term, the building will be used by staff and students enrolled on their popular construction and brickwork courses as an additional workspace and in the long term, as a storage unit when lessons will move to a different part of the campus.

Fitting inside the perimeter of an existing fence line, and positioned conveniently next to the existing workshop facilities, this type of installation demonstrates the ability of our teams to work in tight spaces whilst delivering a bespoke solution that meets the clients’ exact requirements. It’s modularity also allows for the option to seamlessly move it elsewhere on site, if required.

Carl Riding, Director of Estates and Sustainability at the college, said “Spaciotempo responded very promptly to our last minute requirement for extra teaching space to deliver growth in construction trades. During the summer break, they planned, fabricated and installed a semi-permanent building that has since operated very effectively.”

He added “The service, quality of materials and fitting team were all of the highest standard.  I would have no hesitation in recommending the company.”
