Constructed in 1996, the 220,000-square foot warehouse was originally constructed for a medical supply company. The warehouse was purchased by Idaho State University for high-tech research. Structural renovations include alterations to existing precast wall panels, roof framing to accommodate new skylights and mechanical units, and additions for mechanical platforms and welding and automotive tech space. The building additions will also feature photovoltaic panels to provide to partially offset energy consumption associated with this program. In addition to the structural renovations, alterations were made to the existing slab to accommodate the program, such as jib cranes, painting booths, and a new bridge crane. The renovated space will house the welding, diesel, automotive technology and automotive collision, refinishing and repair programs.
