KINGWOOD - A new tech center facility plans to start building as the northeast Houston region continues to grow.
Lone Star College Kingwood plans to host a groundbreaking ceremony for its Process Technology Center, a 40,200-sf facility on 8.3 acres in Generation Park on October 4, 2016.
The facility seeks to train students for entry-level careers as process technologists and operators in a range of industries from petrochemical to pharmaceutical.
A recent report finds there's a growing need for middle-skilled jobs in Houston.
The new facility will be located at 14001 Lockwood Rd.
A price tag was not disclosed in the release, but the college used funds from a $485 million bond package passed in November 2014 to purchase six acres of the land.
The other 2.3 acres were donated by Houston-based McCord Development, the developer of the 4,000-acre master-planned park in northeast Houston.
