Board approves schematics for new
Flex-Tech Building

Laramie County Community College’s Board of Trustees approved the schematic design of the Flex-Tech building during its Nov. 12 meeting.

The Flex-Tech building will be new lab and classroom space for the welding and diesel programs. Emphasis was placed on making the building safe, maintainable, modern and, most of all, flexible. Because these programs require more lab time than traditional classroom time, the classroom spaces are designed to be flexible to accommodate the different programs and save space. The building also allows for expansion of the space as the programs grow.

Both lab spaces will have substantial improvements. The diesel lab will be equipped with a ceiling crane to allow engines to be removed and inserted inside in a controlled environment. Also, a large vehicle through bay is planned. The welding lab will have numerous welding booths and a large amount of space for expansion as needed. New parking will be created for the building as well.

Display area to face College Drive

The building also comes with a project display area that faces College Drive. Several programs will share this space to display to passersby the work of exceptional students. The area is large enough to hold a full-sized vehicle comfortably.
The old welding and diesel space will be used to expand the automotive department as well as engineering and power production. It will also allow for the future expansion of these programs and the development of new ones.
The building will be placed near the east entrance of LCCC at the end of the campus mall. It will set in the empty space between the Career and Technical Building and Plant Maintenance.
