Forsyth Tech Community College, Winston-Salem, NC

The Transportation Technology Center for ForsythTech Community College is a dynamic renovation that gave new purpose to an existing 110,000 square foot strip mall north of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  Providing a new front facade with billboard-type graphics to evoke a race-day atmosphere as well as extensive interior renovations with additional interior super-graphics, the project balances an automotive aesthetic with classroom comfort.
The polished concrete floors provide wayfinding while also reducing maintenance costs, and the building envelope was upgraded to provide improved comfort and HVAC performance.  Each of the interior and exterior graphic panels were provided in-house by the design team.  The FTCC Transportation Center includes Auto Body, Fabrication, Welding, General Automotive, Engine Repair, Performance Racing, Motorcycle Repair, RV Repair, Large Vehicle Repair, classrooms, labs, and administrative and support areas on a self-contained satellite campus site.
