The Myers Technical Center was a large and delicate expansion is a two-story structure on the south end of the current Technical Facility. It houses Laboratory Classes for Biology, Physics, Anatomy and General Science. General Classroom Spaces and Faculty Offices within work areas are also included. The new addition houses state-of-the-art Laboratory equipment. Continued growth in enrollment has required the campus to find effective ways to expand current facilities.
The Myers Technical Education Center is the first of several buildings to begin this process. The Combined Phase I and II, 2-story addition on the west and south side of the facility will add 36,000 s.f. Phase I – $2 Million Phase II – $6 Million (Projected) This new space includes (36) Faculty Offices, Student Lounge, Study Nooks, Conference Rooms, (4) Science Labs, (6) Classrooms and a Lobby/Commons. Minor renovations of the existing facility will occur upon completion of the expansions. Former Missouri Governor Matt Blunt joined OTC officials for a Ribbon Cutting ceremony.
