Technology Career Institute
As a part of the City of Carlsbad’s Community Education & Workforce Development department, MiraCosta College’s Technology Career Institute offers local community members the opportunity to enhance their lives and careers with low-cost, hassle-free classes, workshops, and programs.
They needed to renovate a building to house the institute. It features 61 offices, three conference rooms, a lab space,
a lunchroom, an open office area, and restrooms with shower facilities. The building is used for technical career training, and it houses the North San Diego Small Business Development Center.
We designed energy upgrades for this 23,000-square-foot building, including high efficiency water heaters with circulation pumps, lighting with extreme ballasts and rooftop-packaged heat pump mechanical systems. Special considerations were made to maintain current electrical services to the building.
MiraCosta College’s Technology Career Institute expands the region’s ability to provide skilled workers for industries like high-tech manufacturing, maritime technology, and biotech manufacturing.
