The facility’s exterior is a unique combination of masonry, aluminum cladding, metal siding, and curtainwall. Due to the facility’s open ceiling arrangement, which is designed to give the structure an industrial appearance common in plant environments, intumescent paint is utilized as the fire-proofing technique. The dual-level CEM building consists of two elements: a light, airy and highly visible industrial shop floor and a series of teaching and support spaces, as well as a 90-foot long bridge connecting to the existing college. A truly integrated center, the CEM is pivotal in developing the skills required by the automotive industry in the years ahead.
