The 79,000 s.f. ground-up, cutting-edge Transportation Center that wil consolidate STLCC’s automotive, diesel, and truck driving programs under one roof, fostering an environment of shared knowledge and expanding student capacity. A 36,000 s.f. fleet parking lot and a substantial 193,000 s.f. truck driving lot will provide ample outdoor learning opportunities for hands-on training. Collaborative spaces, break areas, and group workspaces will facilitate a dynamic learning environment for both credit and non-credit students. Additionally, flexible classrooms and adaptable lobby areas were designed to meet student needs and serve as a central hub for hosting events and classes for external organizations, further strengthening the college’s ties with the local community.
This flagship project, a cornerstone in educational and workforce development for the St. Louis metro area, is a key component of the STLCC Transformed Initiative – centered around modernizing facilities and programming to meet the job training and retaining demands of Missouri. The Transportation Center, located on the southern section of the campus, is set to replace an existing parking lot and will redefine collaborative learning for automotive technology, diesel technology, and CDL-A professional truck driving programs.
