New MCC buildings focus on career and technical jobs

Metropolitan Community College breaks ground Tuesday on three new buildings at the Fort Omaha Campus.

MCC is adding a Construction Education Center, Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology, and Academic Skills Center. It's a $90 million total investment. MCC Executive Vice President Jim Grotrian says the new buildings are part of the school's Facilities Master Plan, and have been in the works for four years.

Grotrian says it's a significant investment in infrastructure and is key to MCC's mission. He says it's also an investment in the community and in high-demand jobs.

Grotrian says the new buildings will grow MCC's enrollment and meet the need for high-demand jobs.

Construction will last up to three-and-a-half years.
