ROC's expansion will include the construction of two new buildings, one housing Culinary Arts and the other Auto Tech. Three existing building will be retrofitted to house Construction, Cosmetology, and Vet Tech. Construction will take place during the 2018-2019 school year in anticipation of the buildings being ready for students during the 2019-2020 school year.

Okay, our time estimate from the September post was just a little off, but soon. Very soon.

Four of our five construction projects are student-occupied and already in action. The final project, Culinary Arts, is about 4-6 weeks away. They are getting ready to install state-of-the-art commercial kitchen equipment.

Our final construction project, Culinary Arts, is making great progress. It appears the classrooms will be ready for school's August open with the kitchen trailing by a few weeks. Three staff members have recently been hired. Students are going to have an amazing year.

Things are looking up at ROC!!! With 140 days before the first day of school, our new Auto Tech shop has the foundation poured, the Animal Tech hospital is having the walls insulated, trenches are being dug for what will be our Culinary Arts building, and here we see the front-of-school facade outside of the Cosmetology program is coming along nicely.

Anatomy of an Animal … Lab.

Along with the new and remodeled program buildings currently being constructed, ROC is pleased to announce an updated exterior remodel that will encompass the entire BAS/ROC complex. First opened in 1985, the rock wall that has served us well for 35 years is now both dated and in disrepair. Construction on the new, modern design will begin in the fall and should be completed by February 2020. 
Take a look ...

Auto Tech footing is reinforced and looking good. Looking forward to the next phase.

Recent construction wreaked havoc on our quad area (the rain didn't help either), but in the name of progress, it was worth it.

Naming ideas for our culinary program's cafe? How about "The Pit".
October 24, 2018
Our new Auto Tech shop is experiencing the highs and lows of construction with a deep pit (for the foundation and worker bays) and a mountain of dirt (put off to the side).

Inside this building is our Cosmetology program. The dirt field is our Culinary Arts program. Opening August 2019.

From 1985 to 2018 the above areas housed some of our most popular programs. Those programs will relocate so we can launch our Cosmetology program in 2019.

The ROC expansion project is underway with construction starting on the campus this week. We are happy to have Black Hall and Klassen construction companies as the two general contractors who will be working on these projects. Black Hall will be doing the Veterinary Technology and Construction Trades program projects, while Klassen will be overseeing the Auto Tech, Culinary Arts, and Cosmetology program projects.
