The Automotive Technology (Auto Tech) Building at Evergreen Valley College will expand the college’s mission of the college to provide an environment that cultivates personal and intellectual growth, and prepares students for meaningful employment. Gilbane has been the construction management company overseeing the project. The building is approximately 25,800 square feet and consists of four labs/shops with 14 lifts, as well as 5 classrooms and specialized features for automobile manufacturer sponsored repair programs.
“This project was carefully planned to accommodate current needs, future growth and technological advances (alternative fuel cars) in automotive transportation”, says Mark Miller, Senior Project Executive, Gilbane Building Company, “this is a very exciting time for the District as well as the community, and we are happy this important project has been successfully completed.”
