Hawkeye Community College Buchanan Hall
posted on October 27, 2015 in Education
The latest Buchanan Hall addition serves as the Advanced Technology Business Center for Hawkeye Community College. The project was based on the idea of becoming an outreach center to local businesses such as John Deere, Black Hawk Engineering, and local manufacturing companies. The outreach center is a collaborative environment where students, faculty and partnering businesses meet to discuss current training and what skills HCC is equipping prospective employees with for these local businesses.
An important aspect of the design was a visioning on how to create programs for continuing education opportunities within Advanced Technology fields, how to continue to be the education provider for these businesses and how together these two can help improve and grow the vitality of the local economy.
