Weatherford College opened a new three-story, 70,000 square-foot Workforce & Emerging Technologies building. BHB provided civil engineering, landscape architecture, and land surveying services, as well as structural engineering support for retaining wall design.

The new building is home to a wide variety of vocational training, including the new robotics program, cosmetology, computer science, information technology, Texas Workforce Solutions, and more.

Civil services included site layout, elevation planning for the second floor walking bridge, grading, utilities, and drainage. Since the site had over 30 feet of elevation change in a relatively small area, the structural design included over 670 feet of engineered retaining walls to level the main building, second-story walking bridge, parking area, and ADA access points.

To reflect the building’s aesthetic and appeal, unique landscape design options were provided for the courtyard area and street frontage. Topographic and boundary surveys were also provided.

In addition to classroom space, Weatherford College’s new building offers several training, presentation, and collaboration rooms to better serve the needs of students and the surrounding communities.
