Imagine what we could help you build.
Construction Management at Risk, Estimating, Scheduling
Regency Construction Services, Inc. renovated and expanded the Cuyahoga Community College Advanced Automotive Technology Center (AATC) which created space for faculty offices, a student lounge, classrooms, and a space for the students to learn and expand their mechanic skills and techniques.
Regency served as the Construction Manager at Risk to expand and renovate the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) Advanced Automotive Technology Center (AATC) at the Western Campus. Students pursuing careers in automotive technology today require a high-tech environment to learn the skills they need, so the goal of the project was to make the AATC look and feel like a real car dealership, complete with a showroom and a maintenance center.
This multi-phased program included modernized and expanded lab space and classroom space with two ground-up building additions to the south and west. Regency also constructed additional faculty and staff offices and a student lounge / collaboration space. Regency installed ten automobile lifts and new overhead garage doors, constructed ADA accessible restrooms, and upgraded the transmission and tool rooms.
The building received a new aluminum panel storefront as well as upgrades to electrical, fire protection, plumbing, mechanical and exhaust systems. While the South Addition was constructed with structural steel, the West Addition is a pre-engineered metal building, similar to the way dealerships are constructed today.
Regency self-performed some finish carpentry on this project, including doors, frames, toiletroom accessories, wall panels and blocking.
Regency worked closely with Tri-C, program staff in the building, and our subcontractors to arrange special phasing and swing spaces that would allow us to complete the full scope while school was in session.
