September 19, 2012
From fox11online.com: “Groundbreaking for health and technology center” — GRAND CHUTE – Fox Valley Technical College is expanding. Tuesday, school officials broke ground on a new building.
The Health Simulation and Technology Center is expected to be completed next fall.
A $66.5 million public referendum passed last April will help pay for the project.
It features a three-story, 60,000 square foot building.
“It’s a very exciting day. We’ve been in the planning process for this facility for at least seven or eight years, and to see it come all together and actually turn the dirt today at our groundbreaking, is extremely exciting,” said Robert Sternhagen, the human patients simulator coordinator at FVTC.
Once completed, the new building will also feature new technology, including virtual reality and computer simulation.
