Workforce development project update
The Workforce Development Project of our T building began in the fall of 2012. We are excited about the remodel, which continues the state-of-the-art transitions the College has made over the past few years. In order to ensure everyone on campus is well informed about all project details, we will provide continuous updates on this page.

Campus Improvements: Skyway renovation and Plaza beautification
Starting in April, we began enhancing the outdoor landscaping in the plaza (from Harmon Place to Loring Park between the T Building and Helland Center). This will conclude in Sept. Additional native plants and grasses will blend well with the peaceful environment in Loring Park. We are also renovating the skyway connecting the Helland Center and T Building. The renovation of the skyway involves disassembling and reassembling the skyway to improve the structure and increase the amount of windows, creating a more open and appealing space inside and out.
We have already made several improvements to our campus. We removed concrete surfaces and steps, waterproofed around buildings, re-graded the plaza area to create a gentle slope, and installed pedestrian sidewalks connecting to Loring Park. We also began landscaping with native plants, grasses and trees. And finally, we completed the remodel and expansion of the Helland Center, a community hub for the college that serves students, staff, faculty and visitors.
We are working to minimize the impact of our upcoming project on your daily life. Access to Loring Park, the dog park and surrounding businesses will remain open. Pedestrian paths through construction areas will be clearly marked, clean and free of debris. You can view the areas affected by the skyway renovation here and view the project schedule here.
As always, our goals are to make these projects safe and maintain access between the campus and the Loring Park community. Updates to our campus will be listed on this web page.
