Glendale Community College Technology 3/Automotive Building Remodel
Glendale Community College’s (GCC) Technology 3 (T3) Automotive building houses the college’s automotive curriculum with manufacturer and corporate sponsored programs, a common tool room, resource library, and offices for faculty and staff. The facility, built in the 1960s, was aging and outdated by current technology program standards. In addition, the building’s infrastructure was no longer able to support the facility, staff, and students’ needs. GCC’s Automotive Technology program competes heavily with private autotech colleges and needed a facility that would help attract future students.
Maintenance Design Group (MDG), as part of a comprehensive design team, assisted in planning a phased remodel and upgrade of the facility including improvements to infrastructure, technology, accessibility, and sustainability to meet future program growth, curriculum changes, and technology improvements, as well as to extend the service life of the building.
