Community College of Philadelphia Breaks Ground on New Career and Advanced Technology Center

SCHRADERGROUP (SG) attended the official ceremonial groundbreaking for the Community College of Philadelphia’s new Career and Advanced Technology Center on Wednesday, November 18th. Managing Partner David Schrader represented SG at the event which was also attended by Mayor Jim Kenney and the College’s president, Dr. Donald Generals.

As part of its mission to build a better and brighter future for Philadelphia, the College selected SCHRADERGROUP, in partnership with Lavallee Brensinger Architects, to transform the college’s West Philadelphia Regional Center into a new Career and Advanced Technology Center. The center will provide high-quality academic, career and technical programs for student’s entering the region’s workforce.

The main goal of the project was to create a dynamic, identity-focused center that provides students with programs that concentrate on career readiness and to generate a thriving workforce in Philadelphia’s transportation, manufacturing and healthcare fields.

The new 75,000 SF facility will include state-of-the-art advanced and adaptive technologies for instructional space and study areas as well as laboratory service bays for automobiles, small engine equipment and spaces for diesel technology. Programs offered include transportation and logistics technology training, advanced manufacturing training, entry-level healthcare career training and an innovation hub for small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Other notable features of the facility include LEED certification, energy efficient design utilizing copious amounts of natural daylight, green rooftops for students and community members, a second-floor patio and adjoining room for events, and a learning commons and multiple conference rooms for student collaboration.

The facility is scheduled to open in 2022.
