The construction schedule will depend on funding, but as of now the plan is to open the workforce education building at Big Bend Community College in 2020. Preliminary plans for the new building were delivered last week.
The new building, also called the professional-technical building, will house BBCC’s technical training programs, with the exception of aviation mechanics. That will be housed in a separate building next to its current location on the flight line, said Linda Schoonmaker, the college’s vice president of finance and administration.
The workforce education building will be built on Northeast Bolling Street, across from the existing ATEC center. Workshops for the automotive, welding, fabrication, maintenance mechanics and industrial systems technology programs will be located on the first floor, with computer science and transfer-degree STEM programs on the second floor. Four classrooms will be part of the first floor.
