NASCAR Technical Institute

Mooresville, SC

This 145,000 SF training center for Universal Technical Institute Inc., NASCAR’s exclusive educational strategic partner, offers hands-on training for the auto racing industry with experience in engines and repair, fuel and ignition systems, power trains, brakes, transmissions, electronics and diagnostic equipment. The Institute accommodates 135 instructors and training for up to 1,800 students per year, and also serves as a recruiting tool and fan destination site for NASCAR. The simple, rectangular footprint allows for flexibility of plan, while the economic, repetitive-scored, concrete panels allowed the architect freedom to create strong visual elements at the building’s main public entrances. Finishes were selected for their durability and visual impact.
