MOSES LAKE – After years of waiting, Big Bend Community College broke ground Tuesday for its new Professional Technical Education Center.

The new building, also known as the workforce education center, is being constructed next to the ATEC building. Big Bend officials were joined by RGU Architecture, Lydig Construction, the college’s Board of Trustees, Sen. Judy Warnick and Rep. Tom Dent and community members for a ceremony Tuesday afternoon.

“I’m very excited to be able to share this success of many years of work to arrive at this groundbreaking. A new beginning with an incredible opportunity not only for the college, the students from the surrounding communities also. Juanita Richards.

The 76,000-square foot building will be home to the college’s technical education programs, including automotive, welding, fabrication, maintenance mechanics, computer science and STEM, programs that are currently housed in buildings dating back to the days of the Larson Air Force Base.
