Construction & Renovation Projects

Expand the links below for more information about the projects and general timelines.

Construction scheduled to begin: January 2018

This building, projected to be approximately 69,000 gross square feet, will house many of the industrial technology programs currently located in the Arts & Technology Building, including:

  • automotive technology
  • electrical technology
  • automation engineer technology/industrial maintenance
  • heating, ventilation and air conditioning

The new building will also include space for continuing education for industrial programs to respond to workforce needs. The site identified for the new building is the existing tennis courts, northwest of the ITC building.

The College selected design and construction professionals to work with College stakeholders in planning and constructing this building. BNIM, architects out of Kansas City, will be the architect on this project. JE Dunn Construction management services will oversee the construction.

Construction scheduled to begin: January 2018

A goal of the facilities master plan was to reinforce campus neighborhoods by promoting adjacencies. A new arts building is to be located on the campus's east side near the Carlsen Center, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and the Hospitality & Culinary Academy. The building is projected to be approximately 37,000 square feet and will contain those arts programs currently housed in the ATB building, along with art history, filmmaking and graphic design.

The College selected design and construction professionals to work with College stakeholders in planning and constructing this building. BNIM, architects out of Kansas City, will be the architect on this project. JE Dunn Construction management services will oversee the construction.

Construction scheduled to begin: February 2019

Once the ATB building is vacated as arts and industrial technology programs move to new facilities, the ATB will be renovated to accommodate JCCC welding and general welding for BNSF, as well as for needed space to support Campus Services.

Construction scheduled to begin: January 2020

Once new welding space has been created in the renovated ATB building, WLB is to be expanded for BNSF specialty welding programs. BNSF instructors currently teach welding in metal buildings located to the north of the WLB. With more permanent space provided in the WLB, the metal buildings will be demolished.

Construction scheduled to begin: May 2018

This project involves enhancements to the Student Center and to the north side of campus to strengthen the Student Center as the first stop for students and visitors. The project scope includes activating the first floor of the Student Center by relocating the Welcome Center and bursar functions, along with providing increased Student Life presence to encourage student engagement. Exterior improvements with the goal of better wayfinding will include a change to the façade on the north side of the building, reconfigured roads and increased parking.

The College is currently seeking design and construction management services for this project.

Construction scheduled to begin: May 2018

In addition, the plan calls for upgraded athletic facilities, moving the softball field and soccer fields to the campus's north entrance in the location currently occupied by the track, and adding parking for athletics and a building to contain public restrooms. Once completed, our athletic facilities will be better positioned to host community events. The current track facility will not be relocated, as the College will discontinue track and cross country programs following the Spring 2018 semester.

The College is currently seeking design and construction management services for this project.

Construction scheduled to begin: November 2018

The College's five resource centers — academic achievement, language, math, science and writing — will be consolidated on the first floor of the library. Decisions about which functions will eventually occupy spaces being vacated by the resource centers will be reviewed by the space steering committee. After receiving input and feedback from appropriate constituents, the space steering committee will make recommendations to the president's cabinet.

The College is currently seeking design and construction management services for this project.

The College has budgeted $1 million from the current fiscal year to upgrade approximately 6 current classrooms into active learning classrooms. The deans have worked with the space steering committee to recommend these rooms, and construction begins this summer (2017). It is anticipated that the College will continue to budget approximately $1 million annually to phase in additional classroom spaces as active learning classrooms.
