Tennessee College of Applied Technology Dickson is a new education facility located in Clarksville, Tennessee. The building provides training spaces for students studying technical programs like Cosmetology, Nursing, Welding and Mechatronics.
Flexibility was a key design aspect of this project, and our team designed the space to accommodate multiple courses and class needs. The interior finishes reflect industrial design elements, a choice that unifies the aesthetics of the College with the coursework of the students. Stained concrete creates a neutral and low maintenance flooring solution that works throughout the facility. Seating areas were added in the corridors to maximize space usage and offer alternate break areas for students.
The new facility provides classroom and lab space for hands-on training. Covered outdoor lab space for programs such as welding and industrial maintenance is provided along the rear of the building and includes ample storage and training space.
With design criteria explored for this facility, HFR Design created a prototype that will be used in future centers for the Tennessee College of Applied Technology system.
