The Automotive Technology Center is the third of the first three buildings to be erected at the Colorado Northwest Community College in Craig, Colorado. Located adjacent to the Career Technical Center, the Auto Tech Building is a continuation of the light-industrial character of this section of the campus. As a high-bay, clear-span structure, the building provides flexibility for the existing and proposed future Auto Tech programs, as well as for future unforseen CNCC programs.

The building’s concrete and masonry foundations provide a durable environment for the Auto Tech program, while the building’s wood trusses and roof sheathing provide a warm yet economical counterpoint. This warmth is highlighted by daylight streaming into the building through translucent polycarbonate clerestory wall systems that line the upper portions of the north, south, and west walls of the building.

Overhead doors on the east facade are clear-glass-glazed to allow maximum daylight into the academic and shop environments. Metal wall siding and exposed, textured concrete continue the language adopted by the Career Technical Center, which is proposed throughout this industrial-oriented quadrant of the CNCC campus master plan.
