Project Summary

The Workforce Development Center at Richland Community College project, built for Richland Community College, included the addition of a 6,000-square foot culinary center, interior renovations to classrooms, and the new construction of a 41,500-square foot higher educational center located in Decatur, IL. The facility houses the Shilling Community Education Center, Childcare Center, Industrial Stem Technology Department, and Workforce Development Institute.

A masonry and glass exterior and a membrane and standing seam metal roof completed the construction. The project also featured six classrooms, two conference rooms, kitchen, dining room, skilled trade vocational laboratories, fitness center for students, and offices for faculty and staff.
