The WDC expansion project is assisted by a federal grant titled: ‘EDA Economic Adjustment Assistance Program Grant’. The grant was awarded to JWCC in June of 2021. The total project estimate is supported by the $3.033M federal grant. The contracted firms are Klingner & Associates/BLDD and Maas Construction. Estimated project completion date is the fall of 2023.
Once completed, the project will provide state-of-the-art training opportunities for students to gain relevant skills in the most in-demand fields to meet the area’s work force needs, creating and retaining head-of-household positions, attract private investment and strengthening resiliency throughout the region.
The expansion will add 14,170-square-feet to JWCC’s WDC facility located at 4220 Kochs Lane in Quincy, including a new Truck Driver Training addition, expansion of the east side with a new physical building entrance, expanded space for HVAC, and business and industry training. A remodel of the current interior of the building will include expanded space for welding, industrial maintenance and manufacturing, robotics and automation, and flexible use space for new programs such as a virtual reality lab. A new vehicle road entrance off 42nd Street will lead to a larger parking area.
