MCC renovations in full swing
There’s been a lot going on in the hallways of Marshalltown Community College this summer. The renovation to the Advanced Manufacturing and Health Occupation wings is well underway and things are starting to take shape. The construction began just after graduation this summer and is set to be completed this fall.
The Advanced Manufacturing renovation is taking place on northeast section of the main MCC campus. It will include new instructional labs and classroom spaces for the Machine Tool Technology, Electromechanical Systems Technology, and Utility Technician programs. The Machining lab will grow to two-and-half times its existing space to accommodate new equipment and growing credit and non-credit training programs.
The Health Occupations renovation is taking place on the south side of the MCC campus and will include new classrooms, offices and labs for MCC’s nursing, medical assisting, and dental assisting programs as well as Iowa Valley Continuing Education’s nurse aide, emergency medical services, phlebotomy, pharmacy technician, and health CEU offerings. A new simulation lab will mimic an eight-bed hospital setting, giving nursing and other health occupations students the opportunity to work in a simulated hospital or other healthcare environment.
The Health Occupation project will be completed in August, and the Advanced Manufacturing project completion is scheduled for November.
