Reading Muhlenberg Career & Technology Center – Additions & Renovations
Location: Muhlenberg Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania.
The improvements to the existing Vocational Technical School were designed to upgrade the existing structure and systems, and to provide additional program areas to meet the increasing needs of the Reading School District and the Muhlenberg School District (Joint Operators of this Career Technical Center).
The project included the construction of a new automotive trades building, and a 2-story classroom addition to provide four new program areas. Additions were constructed at other areas of the building to provide expanded space for the building trades programs and for culinary and baking programs. These additions are 1-story structures. The physical layout of the existing building and program locations were altered to provide additional area to the programs that require it, and reduce program spaces that have a decreasing demand. Renovations to the Administrative office area, guidance suite, and business office for the existing building, including comprehensive upgrades of the mechanical and electrical systems, were completed.
