About

Join us on a tour of Metropolitan Community College’s new Fort Omaha Campus Expansion including three new academic buildings (The Construction Education Center, Center for Advanced & Emerging Technology, and Career and Academic Skills Center) and a Central Utility Plant. Encompassing 17 acres of land on the northeast corner of 30th & Sorensen Parkway, the new addition to campus was developed to also include parking, on site storm water bio-retention areas, community use green space, and extensive landscaping. The projects feature new active learning classroom environments including a variety of types of mobile furniture, and integrated A/V systems. The new facilities were built to enhance the student experience from their first step onto campus, with new ‘Welcoming’ services, a larger student Learning Commons offering tutoring and support, as well as multiple types and locations of study and lounge areas to encourage students to stay on campus, collaborate, and get the support they need to succeed. The buildings are expected to receive LEED Gold. Get a sneak-peak before the buildings open this Fall Quarter!

Learning Outcomes:
Learn how the LEED project team used a Master Site and separate individual projects to streamline the certification of three LEED 2009 BD+C projects on a shared site.
Learn how multiple on-site bioretention areas and amended soils contributed to SSc6.1 and SSc6.2 stormwater credits.
Understand how MCC’s urban site contributed to multiple site credits and Exemplary Performance credits including SS4.1 – Public Transportation Access Exemplary Performance for a college-wide transportation plan and SSc2 – Community Collectivity maximum points achieved.
Explain how MCC’s desire for a pedestrian-oriented campus contributed to SSc5.2 – Maximize Open Space, and resulted in a functional outdoor classroom and amphitheater for college and community use.
Learn how the college will benefit from the requirements of EAc5 Measurement & Verification through the use of meters and monitoring for EMS controls and a building dashboard system for users to understand energy use.
Understand MCC’s desire for enhanced commissioning, EAc3, to ensure the new buildings operate as designed.
