Peyton and Widefield School Districts formed a partnership to create a nationally recognized woods manufacturing program called the MILL (Manufacturing Industry Learning Lab)-National Training Center. The program will provide advanced manufacturing-trade training to high school students. By partnering with world renowned equipment manufacturers, state of the art computer numerical controlled (CNC) woods manufacturing equipment will be included to give high school students unparalleled access to equipment used by professionals in the woods manufacturing industry. In addition to the woods manufacturing program, a skilled building trades program is also planned for the facility. By partnering with the local construction industry, the program will bring state of the art construction trades education to the facility as well. To accommodate these cutting-edge programs, RTA worked closely with Peyton and Widefield School Districts to assist in the development of specific space program and equipment infrastructure requirements and solutions.
The project is currently under construction and is located in an existing 46,565 square foot manufacturing warehouse facility owned by the Widefield School District. The project includes a full renovation of the building to incorporate state of the art classrooms, computer/CNC programming spaces and specialized learning spaces to accommodate these unique programs. Building systems replacement is planned and will include new HVAC systems, LED lighting, and power distribution to the learning spaces and specialized manufacturing equipment.
