Campus Planning

What We Do

  • MCC Masterplan

    • MCC engaged SmithGroupJJR and Paulien & Associates to review and update data compiled as part of the 2010 Master Plan Update for Campuses and Centers. The 2014 Master Plan Data Update is a continuation of the 2010 Master Plan Update with shared overarching principles and project goals. Additionally, the 2014 Update includes recommendations for responding to growth in Sarpy County.
    • 2011 Implementation Plan focused on Fort Omaha and Elkhorn Valley campuses, to direct immediate development. Current Building Programming efforts were recommended in the Implementation Plan.
    • In 2010, MCC and its Board of Governors directed an update to its 2003 Masterplan. The 2010 Update was meant to position MCC for smart and sustainable growth of space and facilities to efficiently accommodate its growing population. The Executive Summary focuses on sustainability integration and unprecedented growth in enrollment. Full 2010 Masterplan Update is also available through the link.

    • Construction Education Center, Fort Omaha Campus: MCC's Master Plan Update calls for Centers of Specialization, including migration of construction-related trades programs to the Fort Omaha Campus. MCC hired HDR Architects, who met with individual program areas to assure they have allotted appropriate space and support for the construction related programs slated to migrate to Fort Omaha Campus. Instructors and staff are beginning their own transition to a new Problem-Based Learning model, where the new facility will allow more collaboration between distinct areas of the trades.
    • Center for Advanced & Emerging Technologies, Fort Omaha Campus: An innovative way of doing business for a college, MCC's plans for CAET were developed with a consortium of college Advanced Technology Centers, the NCATC. This facility will co-locate local industries with MCC's students and faculty to provide high skills training in fields related to the intersection of trades and technology.
    • Arts & Classroom Building, Elkhorn Valley Campus: will house career-oriented visual arts programs such as photography, interior design, animation, game design, web design and graphic design.  The center will take career art programs to the next level, as well as blend entrepreneurial training with creative approaches to general education to prepare transfer students for their four-year degrees.  An expanded Gallery of Art and Design, paired with flexible community arts education space, will extend Omaha’s thriving art community west and enrich the lives of learners of all ages. Bahr Vermeer Haecker Architects worked with faculty at EVC to determine space needs and project goals for the new facility.
