Newtown Campus, Phase 2 - Bluegrass Community & Technical College
Lexington, Kentucky

As part of Kentucky Community & Technical College’s BuildSmart initiative, Bluegrass Community and Technical College is expanding its Newtown Campus. This project includes the programming, design and construction administration of a 65,000 square foot Science Center for multiple degree programs. The facility will house laboratory space, science classrooms, and administrative/faculty offices, and other auxiliary spaces.

Student support spaces include areas for quiet study, interaction zones, and student lounges. The facility will showcase BCTC’s commitment to excellence in the sciences and preparing our next generation of graduates for tomorrow’s workplace. Targeting LEED Silver certification, the design includes innovative sustainable practices such as light shelves, low emissivity glazing, utilization of regional materials, ample daylighting and views, and energy/water conservation measures throughout the building.

The project team is also developing a plan for relocating programs from the Cooper Campus on University of Kentucky Campus to BCTC’s Newtown Campus.
