Delgado River City Community College
The new Delgado River City Community College will offer students the chance to master technical trades, both in the classroom and with hands-on training in their state of the art facilities. This new branch of Delgado is set to become a technical college where students can learn skills like welding, shipfitting, pipefitting, CNC machine operation and more.
When completed, the $20M design-build project will yield several classrooms and training labs for students to get their hands dirty. Two of these labs, situated at the end of the building’s two wings, will require equipment so large they needed to have large overhead roll-up doors in order to fit it into the rooms. These two rooms will be used as the Diesel/Automotive Lab and Pipefitting/Welding Lab. Both rooms will utilize overhead cranes as well as outside canopy areas in order for students to get the hands on training necessary. There will be several parking lots that wrap around the building, providing ample parking spaces for the estimated 1,600-3,000 students. The project is set to be completed by August of 2018.
