Meade County College & Career Center

Meade County Schools, Brandenburg

“The Meade County College & Career Center will be one of the most state-of-the-art, comprehensive vocational technology schools in the state of Kentucky. It will blend state vocational programs with the technology in advancing students. Nowhere do we have this kind of collaboration and the partnerships that are so critical.” – Dr. John Millay, Superintendent

 

New Meade County College & Career Center

 

 

Meade County College & Career is Kentucky’s first vocational, early college and career, adult ed, and satellite campus for ECTC — all in one building! It was originally constructed in 1975 and received minor improvements in the 1990’s and in 2005. This expansion and substantial renovation touched every aspect of the building and is one of the most significant building projects with regard to academic programming for Meade County Schools.

Working closely with District staff, local and regional industry, as well as the Elizabethtown Community & Technical College faculty, Sherman Carter Barnhart provided an innovative design solution to support 30 career and college pathways, allowing students to earn college credit and/or industry certification.

Adjacent to Meade County High School, the new College & Career Center is connected via canopied walkways featuring the Meade County Green Wave.

Due to the complexity of the renovation and the school remaining in use, the project was broken into three phases: renovating the existing classroom space, expanding the square footage, and adding a second floor of learning space.

Included in the renovation were upgrades to each existing high bay area for welding, automotive, HVAC, emergency medical technical and carpentry programs. The building was expanded to include new spaces for existing pre-nursing and marketing programs, and the addition of four new programs: allied health, information technology, robotics, and machine tool/industrial maintenance.

Now complete, the Meade County College & Career Center offers career pathway opportunities for Meade County High School students (which align with ECTC’s technical programs), along with Meade County Adult Education, which is coordinated by ECTC. The College & Career Center is serving as a satellite campus for ECTC to offer evening college classes at the facility.

The addition is constructed with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) exterior walls to promote energy efficiency, along with a heavily insulated roof system. It also includes a 30kw photovoltaic system to achieve Net Zero Emerging Energy status.
