Part of ongoing efforts to right-size college facilities and provide space for the latest technology, Southeast Technical recently selected a contractor for its transportation building expansion on the Winona campus. La Crosse-based Market & Johnson, Inc. was the low bidder out of 11 bids received. Construction is slated to begin in early to mid-May with completion in the fall.
The transportation building expansion calls for a 25,000 square foot addition to the truck driving training building which, in addition to the Truck Driving program, will house the Auto Body Collision Technology and Automotive Technology programs. Space on the Winona main campus currently occupied by these programs will be given to the Computerized (CNC) Precision Machining Technology, Industrial Technology and Welding Technology programs, which have been renting space at the former airport campus now owned by Plasticomp.
