SFCC Automotive Technologies Center
Voters supported local bonds to construct SFCC’s 17,533 square foot LEED Gold, ADA-compliant Automotive Technologies Center (ATC). The ATC is equipped with classrooms and spaces that emulate the automotive customer service experience of an auto dealership including parts management, inventory control, quick repairs, and beginning to end of work ticketing system.
Educational spaces include a large shop space with lifts, three specialized labs: chassis/suspension, electric and EV/hybrid engine/power train, a computer/trainer classroom, offices, and support spaces. The Flex Lab, located off the main entry plaza doubles as a car showroom for events and is designed to be shared with other SFCC programs. The entry/corridor features a gallery sponsored by the Santa Fe Concorso that houses automotive photographs and memorabilia. Outside, there are four Electrical Vehicle Charging stations, an entry plaza, picnic tables, visitor parking, and fenced storage for program cars. As a replacement for the previous 2,000 square foot leased garage space away from the Main Campus, students are thankful for the new facility that allows them more opportunities. The facility’s architectural design blends well with SFCC’s campus while it’s butterfly roof signals its status as a state-of-the-art facility.
