N.C. Community College Building New Collision Repair Shop
June 13. 2019—Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, N.C., will start construction on its new, $7 million, 34,000 square-foot, automotive and collision repair building on Monday, as reported by WNCT 9.
The building will bring all of the college's automotive and collision repair classrooms, bays, workrooms, and offices under one roof. They are currently spread through four buildings around a vehicle containment lot.
The front of the building will be conventional construction and the rear will be a pre-engineered building with accommodations for possible expansion. It was designed for maximum flexibility and will feature open spaces that can be used for meetings and training, collaboration space for students, classrooms on a mezzanine which overlook lab spaces, and a lobby with an automotive showroom feel. Special accrediting requirements from partner automotive manufacturers have also been factored into the design.
The building is scheduled to be ready for occupancy for classes in the fall 2020 semester.
