The bespoke temporary building solution enabled the colleges’ Sheppey Campus to extend the Building & Construction courses on offer. Students can study diplomas in Bricklaying, Carpentry and Joinery, Site Carpentry or take a Multi-trades course that teaches the basics.
Established in 1947 Canterbury College has grown to be one of the largest Further and Higher Education Colleges in the area
The Building & Construction courses have enjoyed huge growth so funding was secured to extend the college facilities to accommodate the burgeoning numbers of students and diploma activities. Building contractors Benning Brothers were appointed due to their extensive experience in the sector, who in turn appointed Offset Architects. Together, both parties turned to temporary buildings as a potential solution after traditional buildings proved too expensive for the budget given.

With the potential for escalating costs and the need to consider future expansion needs – Aganto were approached to provide a temporary building solution.
