Skylon Park Campus Development is a pivotal component of NMITE, comprising three cutting edge, world-class buildings and teaching facilities: the Centre for Advanced Timber Technology (CATT), the Centre for Automated Manufacturing (CAM) and the Centre for Future Skills (CFS).
NMITE has already received £5.7million from the LEP’s Growth Programme in June 2020 and has now secured a further £1.6million from the Getting Building fund as part of a £12.137m project to accelerate completion of the build programme for the Centre for Automated Manufacturing.
The CAM will boost manufacturing output and digital connectivity through its work with partners and businesses, enhancing automation capability through skills, training and applied research.
The project had also previously received another £2.3million for its Blackfriars Campus in the city centre as part of Phase 1.
The project will create an additional 26 new jobs and 100 additional construction jobs as well as accelerating a number of other outputs including the creation of 2,500m² of new learning space to assist 200 new learners with short courses, under and post-graduate courses and degree apprenticeships.
