It’s been a while since we checked in with construction of the Jefferson Community & Technical College‘s new Allied Health building on its Downtown campus, and we’re pleased to see a nearly complete exterior facade. Since April, construction crews have finished laying brick, installed metal panels, and placed windows with two shades of glass.
A glass curtain wall is currently climbing up the signature staircase on Second Street topped with a curved roof. Elsewhere, work is also being done on the building’s main entrance at the core of the JCTC campus. We’re not sure what the interior is looking like, but it’s sure to take a while longer to get the interior finishes completely installed. The building wraps around an older concrete structure, filling in a once sunken courtyard; it was designed by Arrasmith, Judd, Rapp, Chovan of West Main Street.
The Allied Health building can’t be finished too soon, though. The C-J is reporting how enrollment at Jefferson Community & Technical College has soared 7.5 percent this year with 1,000 additional students.
