When Maysville Community & Technical College (MCTC) needed a construction manager to construct their new Rowan County campus, Trace Creek was there to help. The new school opened to students in January 2018. MCTC Rowan Campus created a much-needed expansion for the school, which has seen its student population balloon in recent years due to the popularity of their educational programs. The 30-year-old building they had been using was busting at the seams. The dramatic increase in enrollment in the college resulted in 1,300 students per semester in a building designed to house only 350 students.
MCTC’s new, state-of-the-art Rowan County campus comfortably handles 1,200 students, with new expansions planned. The new building includes nursing laboratories, a bookstore, student lounge, science labs and a cafeteria. The structure houses a 90,000 square foot Postsecondary Center of Excellence in Advanced Manufacturing, created as a joint partnership with Morehead State University.
The building consists of structural steel framing with a brick exterior and CMU interior, and is finished with architectural wall panels. Construction also included aluminum curtain walls, as well as an SBS modified bituminous membrane roof. MCTC’s Rowan County Campus has been registered with the US Green Building Council, and will achieve LEED Silver certification.
This project is the second new campus facility that Trace Creek has constructed for the Kentucky Community & Technical College System. Trace Creek is well known throughout Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia, as a premier construction provider, willing to go the extra mile to ensure that projects are finished on budget, on time, and with minimal disruption to student life. Trace Creek is pleased to contribute to the education and wellbeing of our communities by constructing schools that continue to enhance the lives of our children for generations to come.
