Located a few blocks east of the existing campus, the Center of Applied Transportation Technology (CATT) is known as one of the most advanced transportation centers in the country. This new location is focused on students seeking job-ready credentials in the transportation industry. The CATT gives interdisciplinary learning experience, which is supported by the collocation of aircraft, automotive, heavy construction, agricultural, and aircraft equipment education.
Abbott provided project and risk management, as well as life-cycle costing services. Through a complete repositioning of the existing industrial structure, the original factory was transformed into a state-of-the-art Transportation Center. The facilities’ sustainable design included extensive natural light, enhanced building automation systems, and passive solar shading. The most distinguishable of these strategies is the green roof vegetated with drought resistant plants that maintains the building’s temperature, protects the roofs’ membrane from UV rays, maximizes storm water retention, and provides hands-on experience for students in the Horticultural Program.
