Envisioned to meet the growing need for continual workforce training and development among residents of Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset Counties, this 48,000 sf. Workforce Development Center was planned and designed to efficiently support this initiative as well as showcase several unique and exciting features that promotes an ideal environment for learning. These features include as sun-lit Hallways, glass-front Conference and Meeting Rooms, a Resource Center, an expandable 75-seat Lecture Hall and a wi-fi supported Student Lounge Area.

Meanwhile, on the second floor are computer laboratories, technology-enhanced classrooms often referred to as “Smart Classrooms”, Offices for faculty and staff, and the College’s Business and Hospitality Management Program featuring a Culinary Laboratory with a Dining Room for students to experience “hands-on” food service scenarios. This whole component of the project was outfitted with industry-specific equipment so that students can be prepared when they graduate to go to work for area hospitality employers.

Built within the existing campus of Wor-Wic Community College in Salisbury, Maryland at an estimated cost of $17.8M, this project was completed and became fully operational in the fall of 2007.
