NWTC Begins Construction on Transportation Center, Diesel Truck Facility

Construction is underway on a plot of land across East Campus Drive from the Building and Construction Technology Center on the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) campus in Green Bay. Crews are working on the new NWTC Transportation Center. The project is part of the $66.5 million referendum voters passed in April of 2015.

The 63,000-sq ft. building will house the College’s Automotive, Auto Collision and Diesel Medium and Heavy Truck programs. The diesel truck program is brand new to NWTC.

Plans for the new facility include a state-of-the-art diesel truck repair lab, auto collision and refinishing lab, and two auto repair labs complete with a shared parts department. The building also includes five classrooms, meeting and study spaces, a transportation welding shop, and a state-of-the-art high bay demonstration lab for instructional and corporate partner use.

The facility will serve up to 96 auto tech students, 96 diesel truck repair students, and 32 collision and refinishing students. It is expected to open in the fall of 2017.
