In line with the DTC’s vision to reach out and develop program specific to workforce needs, the Technical College wanted to develop a presence and signature on this facility so it was specifically recognizable to students and the business community.
The facility is listed as a building of historical significance.

During construction, which involved a complete seismic upgrade, several unknown conditions in the construction of the facility were uncovered. The design team worked closely with the contractor and the campus to provide solutions that were cost effective and were easily implemented.
