Northshore Technical Community College
The new 15,169 SF facility was designed to accommodate specialized training for nursing, welding, advanced manufacturing, electrical systems, administrative, and faculty and support spaces. All these spaces are envisioned to support the Workforce Training Center mission of the Northshore Technical Community College. The site is adjacent to the Southeastern Louisiana University Livingston Literacy and Technology Center in Walker, La. It operates in conjunction with this institution by sharing classrooms for general education space. The facility’s design is inspired by a contemporary image and symbolizes the forward-thinking approach of the college. The Walker campus also houses offices for the Livingston Economic Development Office. This relationship creates synergy with workforce development and definition of future needs for the community.
