the Project study

The project will improve and reconfigure existing laboratories. Building systems operating well beyond their useful life including structure, envelope, HVAC, lighting, electrical and plumbing will also be addressed.

Transportation/Automotive Technology
The Ford ASSET (Automotive Student Service Educational Training) department offers Dynamometer Technician certification. Additional vehicular lab space will be created to continue support of this growing program, especially with the emergence of connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

Fabrication Laboratory
The Welding Program and Welding Lab will join the Precision Machining/CNC and Computer Aided Design (CAD) departments in one contiguous SuperLab space.

Product Development Center
This space will provide a collaboration zone connecting students, faculty, industry partners, potential employers, and entrepreneurs with space and resources for idea-sharing, innovative design, and manufacturing.

Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Business Skills Center
This Center will occupy space adjoining multiple HFC Technology Labs.

Advanced Manufacturing Early College
Expansion of space to accommodate continued growth.

Improved Learning Spaces in the Technology Building
Upgrades to at least 9 classrooms/instructional labs to improve flexibility and connectivity to new and improved hands-on lab environments.
