Manhattan Area Technical College in Manhattan, Kan., is undergoing a major expansion.
The college is planning to construct a College and Career Center that would benefit the Manhattan-Ogden school district, reports The Manhattan Mercury.
The college plans to add at least three prefabricated buildings on its campus: a three-story, 75,000-square-foot building; a 23,600-square-foot building; and a 7,800-square-foot welcome center.
The project would remove the modular buildings on the east side of campus and replace them with two prefabricated steel structures that would hold three to four programs each. Each building would cost about $5 million, with a total “ballpark cost” of $30 to 35 million for the project.
The plans also call for renovating some portions of the main campus building, as well as the college’s Bluestem Electric training site in Wamego..
