This facility is a renovation of an existing 43,000 SF warehouse building that will be used for Tri-County Technical College’s Welding, HVAC, and Building Construction programs. The Industrial Technology Center includes classrooms, faculty offices, and three main industrial areas for each program of study with the possibility of future expansion space. Within the lab spaces, the design is focused on flexibility and collaboration.
To allow greater understanding by the faculty and engineers, the design team used BIM modeling (REVIT), which provided 3D plans and virtual walkthroughs at every stage of design. All mechanical, electrical and structural systems are also modeled in this manner to give a complete understanding of the facility before construction began.
