Madison Area Technical College expands student fabrication lab

May 7, 2012

From “Madison Area Technical College expands student fabrication lab” — After years of planning, Madison Area Technical College of Madison, Wis., began construction on a 3,000-square-foot addition to its lab.

The new addition will house the college’s rough mill, including its Kentwood moulder, a tool room with a new profile knife grinder and additional fabrication space. The news addition will also have wall-to-ceiling racks that will allow for stock to be stored at ground level, so students no longer need to haul materials up and down stairs. The existing dust collection system will also be replaced.

During a second construction phase, an additional 2,000 square feet will be created through remodeling. Plans for the remodel include an expanded finish room, a new assembly room, maintenance room, a clean veneering space and a climate-controlled room for veneer storage, a materials library and a new classroom for large seminars.

The first phase of the construction and addition project will be complete in August, while the second phase will take place during the 2012-13 school year, to be ready by fall 2013. For further information, contact Patrick Molzahn at, call 608.246.6842, or visit
