GSCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Center gets the green light

It’s official: After months of discussion, Gadsden State Community College is officially in the beginning phases of construction on its Advanced Manufacturing Center.

This announcement was made on Thursday during a press conference at the college.

Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood has been selected as the architect on the project; a groundbreaking ceremony will be held at a later date.

The project was originally proposed in 2021 after the college began applying for funding to make it happen. The facility was initially projected to cost $10 million for up to a 42,000-square-foot building to host advanced manufacturing programs.

Now, however, the center will span over 50,000 square feet, in a facility that will be built adjacent to the East Broad Street campus and is set to feature a variety of workshops for programs such as welding, precision machinery and robotics.
