Lacy Construction has been selected to complete a 32,000-square-foot expansion and renovation of the Hamilton Building on Central Community College’s Hastings campus. The facility will be home to the College’s Advanced Manufacturing Design Technology (AMDT) and Welding Technology programs. The groundbreaking ceremony held on September 26, 2018 signaled the start of the $10.3 million renovation. Construction on the addition will begin immediately with a proposed completion date of Fall 2019.
The expansion will include a 17,000-square-foot addition constructed on the south side of the building for the AMDT program and a 15,000-square-foot renovation of the existing facility will house the Welding Technology labs. CCC-Hastings President Bill Hitesman states that the new space will be high-tech and state-of-the-art. “We will have a 3D innovation lab with 3D printers,” says Hitesman. “There is going to be a tremendous opportunity for students in the future in what we’re doing.”
