Expansion and renovation of the tech center at Sheridan College is on track for completion in August.

Kent Andersen, who's the college facilities director, said work started about a year ago.

The finished building will be about 52,000 square feet in size, he said. Andersen said because classes are being held in the building, the project has been complex, with construction being phased in the building to allow classes to continue. Some construction is being deferred until after graduation.

Andersen said the cost of the project is around $13 million, with half of that being funded by Whitney Benefits and the other half by the state of Wyoming.

He said Dick Anderson Construction of Sheridan is construction manager for the project.

Andersen said Sheridan College has expanded its diesel tech and welding and construction tech programs by about 40 percent through the tech center work. He said the project was undertaken to meet the demands of all the students who want to attend Sheridan College.
