Tulsa Technology Center broke ground at its Broken Arrow campus on Nov. 2 to nearly triple the size of the facility. The 241,348 square-foot expansion project will increase the size of the entire facility to 366,396 square feet of classrooms, laboratories and shops located on a 57-acre site.
The project will combine 13 of Tulsa Tech’s transportation service programs under one roof. The new building will include three expansion labs for future growth. Over 60 faculty members, students, administrators and dignitaries marked the start of construction, expected to take 18 months. When completed, the building will house 16 classrooms and 13 labs/shops. Matrix is the project architect and construction management is by Nabholtz Company. Construction budget for the project is set at $32 million.
“The metropolitan Tulsa area is undergoing a renaissance of new building construction,” says Superintendent Dr. Gene Callahan. “We are excited about building a new state-of-the-art training facility that will be dedicated to preparing the skilled technicians needed in the transportation field.”
Tulsa Technology Center is the oldest and largest technology center district in Oklahoma and is dedicated to the mission of preparing people for success in the workplace.
