This new building is a great addition to their popular Automotive Technology program to train new students in the art of automotive repair and maintenance. With 8 bays, 7 car lifts, a brand new dynamometer in place and a high tech classroom and Transmission bench lab, the campus hopes to enhance the learning experience for the new students.
The use of Concrete masonry blocks with alternating bands of smooth faced and split-faced blocks makes the building more architecturally pleasing while retaining the high tech industrial look that the College District was trying to achieve. The alternative was a plain CMU block building seen so often in industrial/commercial settings, which was far from the District’s aesthetic goals for this building. Other reasons for using Masonry blocks includes numerous environmental benefits and cost savings.
