Incredible video by Hideaway Time-Lapse Systems show Newark Air and Space Institute being built by G F Tomlinson, just off the Cattlemarket roundabout, with support from Newark and Sherwood District Council.
A mesmerising time-lapse video shows scale of building the Newark Air and Space Institute (ASI) over the course of this year.
The incredible video was captured by Hideaway Time-Lapse Systems and shows the progress made on site, just off the Cattlemarket roundabout, thanks to the work of G F Tomlinson.
It gives a fascinating look at the construction process, after the foundations were laid and the first steels erected at the start of the year.
Once open the ASI will be a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the education of young people through a range of courses and pathways into careers in areospace industries, teaching over 200 students a year
The institute is scheduled for completion by the summer of 2024, with the first students able to enter the building from September — current ASI students are learning in industry-designed simulation suites from expert tutors at Newark College.
It has been building using money from the government’s Towns Fund initiative and is supported by Newark and Sherwood District Council and Newark Town Board
Other milestones for the ASI in 2023 include the delivery of a full size Airbus A318, which travelled 110 miles up the A46 from Gloucestershire and will be used to give trainee engineers and pilots hands on experience with a plane which currently in service around the world.
The Advertiser was even allowed a sneak peak inside the building to see the Airbus and find out what how the building would benefit the town.
It will directly create almost 40 new jobs for the area and more importantly is predicted to create many more over the coming years as the next generation looks to embark on careers and pathways into better skilled, well paid jobs in the civil and military aviation industries closer to home.
The ASI also has the backing of a number of key industry supporters including, the Royal Air Force, East Midlands Airport, Air Salvage International, Flight Director, Inzpire, AAR, Leonardo, Eagle Eye Innovations, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and the National Space Centre.
