Delgado River City Advanced Manufacturing Center
The new Delgado River City Community College offers 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 a technical college where students can learn skills like welding, shipfitting, pipefitting, CNC machine operation and more. Completed in August 2018, the $20M design-build project yields 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, 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 are several parking lots that wrap around the building, providing ample parking spaces for the estimated 1,600-3,000 students.
Woodward’s field management team executed and managed this project with the highest level of detail and professionalism. Thanks to these concerted efforts, the facility was completed on schedule.
