Current/Ongoing Projects

Heintz Center 1100 Suite Predesign

The Rochester Community and Technical College is currently working with the Architecture and Engineering design team of HGA on the Heintz Center 1100 Suite Predesign project.

The Heintz Center is a building complex that contains five interconnected buildings built over the course of time between 1969 and 2014. The total gross square footage is 212,344 GSF. The area affected by this project is primarily in the 1100 Suite with additional work in the 1200 Suite, portions of the 1300 Suite, and commons (part of the 1400 Suite). The primary focus of this project is to improve academic program adjacenies, better utilize the available building space, and improve the overall efficiency of the 1100 Suite technical lab spaces.

This Predesign is planned to be completed in 2021 for a State of Minnesota General Obligation Bond project design funding request in 2022 and anticipated construction funding in 2024.
