New Advanced Technology Center and MTEC Expansion

Greenville, Michigan // 20,685 sq. ft.

As traditional manufacturing jobs left central Michigan after the recession, more positions in advanced manufacturing began to emerge. To maintain pace with the changing industry and better address the needs of regional businesses, MCC started offering more advanced manufacturing training in adaptable technology-rich learning spaces.

MCC partnered with TowerPinkster to develop a new Advanced Technology Center and expand and renovate the existing MTEC building to be better suited to meet the demands of regional manufacturing businesses. Learning spaces for the College’s existing Renewable Energy Program were expanded with modern classrooms, laboratories, offices, and support spaces in the new Advanced Technology Center.

The addition and renovation optimized advanced technology programming and provided space for future flexibility. Additionally, the project increased site visibility and student access to the facility while providing more space for the College’s Automotive Technology Program. The design utilized a variety of green building principles and achieved LEED-Silver certification.
