CHEYENNE, WYO. — A new facility is opening at Laramie County Community College, and everyone is welcome to join the celebration.
The event will take place at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30, in the west courtyard of the new facility. Parking is available in lots around the building and across campus. Gov. Matt Mead will be the featured speaker.
The two-story facility is roughly 46,000 square feet and cost approximately $16 million to construct.
Flex Tech, which is the formal name of this flexible technology building, will be home to variety of technical programs including diesel technology, engineering technology, welding fabrication, and construction management. Because of the building design, it can be modified to house additional technical programs to meet the workforce needs of the community and region.
Funding for the building was made possible through a bond election in 2013, as well as through funding through the Wyoming State Legislature. This money is also being used to construct the new student services building, also known as Pathfinder. That facility will open in January 2017.
This is the first new building to open on the LCCC campus since the Health Science building in 2008.
