LKC Building Spotlight: Ranken Technical College
By: Ryan Perrryman
This project for Ranken Technical College involved building the college’s new Manufacturing Inc. building. As educational educational leaders, Ranken wants to create a MicroEnterprise Program where students can learn and earn on campus. The building is a 24,000 SF Manufacturing Incubator/Training Center that provides students with an integrated, work-based experience.
This facility is a combination of a pre-engineered metal building framework with exterior architectural enhancements of storefront glazing, custom color masonry, perforated metal panel to enhance the architectural metal panels. The entry lobby leads to a spacious corridor leading to the work cells, classroom space, break room, restrooms and offices. Architectural finishes include wall graphics in corridor and ceramic tile in restrooms. Each work cell is equipped with its own concrete apron drive-up and a motor-operated overhead door.
This state-of-the-art, ADA compliant facility will be utilized by generations to come. L. Keeley Building is proud to partner with Ranken to enhance and evolve their higher education programs.
