RTM is providing engineering and design of the MEP/FP systems for the buildout of the existing big box Lowe’s home improvement store for use as an Advanced Technology Center for welding, CNC, industrial maintenance, robotics/mechatronics, related technical educational programs, and support services. The 142,000-square-foot space will allow the College to expand three of its current manufacturing focused programs, including automation, robotics and mechatronics, computer numerical control (CNC) and welding, while adding the high-demand program of industrial maintenance.

The state-of-the-art facility will include two floors and a v-shaped atrium at the center. The atrium will be multipurpose space for events such as job fairs and lectures. The second-floor mezzanine will house classrooms and workshops with a view of the atrium.
