Renovation Moves Forward at Omaha Campuses

Spring 2010 | Archives

Two renovation projects slated for completion this year will help ease the growing demands of MCC.

 

From Stable to Classroom

The historic Mule Barn will celebrate its 100th birthday this year with renovations to complement the new Sorenson Parkway entrance to MCC´s Fort Omaha Campus.

The building was originally used by the Army as a stable for mules that moved freight, supplies and equipment throughout the area. The College acquired the building in 1975 and used it for construction technology and auto body classes, which have since moved to other locations, according to Stan Horrell, Assistant Director of Facilities, planning and construction.

Construction began in July 2009 to strip the interior of the building to its posts and beams while replacing electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems to meet modern demands.

Once the $2.6 million renovation is completed this fall, the building will become a mixed-use facility with classrooms, offices, meeting areas and a public lounge including an outdoor patio.

 

Keeping Pace with Demand

A $1 million renovation of the Industrial Training Center at the South Omaha Campus will help meet demand for instruction in the industrial and electrical trades.

Increased enrollment spurred the renovation of 24,000 square feet of the 32-year-old building. Construction began in February 2010 and is slated for completion at the end of November.

The renovated space will include offices for faculty and support staff and changes to staging and storage areas for the building´s conference areas. New mechanical, electrical, lighting and data systems will support the new teaching facilities.
