TYLER - Tyler Junior College (TJC) will construct a three-story, 52,360-sf Energy Center for $7 million.

The Energy Center, located on TJC’s West Campus, will house facilities and training for three major areas: power production, energy extraction and process industry.

Set to open in fall 2015, the Energy Center will feature

•  labs for heating, ventilation and air conditioning training, power plant technology and computers;
•  a large assembly room; and
•  up to nine classrooms for alternative energy programs.

The plan is to construct more than 33,000 sf of finished floor space on the first two floors and leave more than 17,800 sf of unfinished space on the third floor for future development. Groundbreaking is expected in March 2014.

The Energy Center will be an addition to the 70,000-sf Skills Training Center on West Campus.

Opened in January 2003, the Skills Training Center houses the college’s automotive technology and welding programs.
