The city of Rosemount has presented DCTC with a certificate of occupancy. Classes started on schedule in the Transportation Careers and Technical Careers program areas involved in Phase I of the Transportation & Emerging Technologies Project. Shaw-Lundquist personnel continue to complete the punch list of final details. The new, general-purpose classrooms should be ready for use in two weeks. For all intents and purposes, Phase I is complete. DCTC has requested $6.9 million in capital bonding funds for Phase II of the project.
Work on program area shops will be wrapping up this week. Faculty will be returning to campus this week as well. Transportation and Technical Careers instructors will be collaborating with renovation project personnel to get everything organized in their program areas. Work on the project punch list of final details is underway and will take a few months to complete.
New classroom spaces will be finished and released for use in September. Cleanup of the south lot has begun, including the removal of Dumpsters and construction trailers. The lot will be swept as a further clean-up measure. The project is right on track and classes will begin at the start of fall semester, Monday, Aug. 26, as scheduled.
