Wake Technical Community College
This 3-story, 66,000 sf facility is a general classroom building focused on biotechnology instruction for 2-year college students, as well as non-degree workforce continuing education students. Integrating with the Early College Program for high school students, the building provides a variety of general and specialty classroom and labs, offices, a science suite with an aseptic clean room, and various collaboration spaces.
Design flexibility was demonstrated with the RT2 Classroom Building when significant program changes were made after the conclusion of Construction Documents and two weeks before receipt of bids. The design team worked closely with WTCC’s leadership and stakeholders to define the new program, provide a budget confirmation and in a compressed timeframe, revise the Construction Documents. As a result of these efforts, the program offerings in the building are now aligned with community needs.
