This design/build project consisted of an architecturally relieved pre-cast-concrete-and-structural-steel framed building with tilted curtain-wall glazing, extensive use of brick veneer, and Centria metal wall panels to produce a “Detroit auto manufacturing” motif. The building is used as an automotive educational facility, encompassing laboratory work space along with full-service collision and automotive bays, including lifts, a compressed air system, dynamometer, state-of-the-art paint booths, an upholstery shop, welding room, administration offices and student work spaces. The building is LEED certified.
This project was built on rural farm land within the city limits of Windsor, requiring that all utilities (gas, electric, sewer, storm, and communications) be brought to the site over long distances. New access roadways and pedestrian walkways along the roads were also part of Bryan Construction’s scope.
