The 140 acre Regional Community College Campus will house the biggest satellite campus for Chattanooga State Community College. The masterplan relocates the existing Regional Skills Center facility in Kimball allowing for expansion to accommodate the growing demand for technical and vocational training in the Sequatchie Valley. The future campus when completed will serve 1500 students in multiple buildings. The masterplan takes advantage of the natural beauty of the site. The property was previously a horse farm and the campus incorporates a campus green with a walking path on the remnants of the old race track.
Referencing its agricultural roots the buildings and theme are those of modern day farm buildings. They are simple and durable with metal and brick finishes. The buildings will utilize skylights for natural daylighting, will capture rainwater for irrigation of the landscaping and feature high performance walls for lowered energy use.
Funding sources include Marion County Investments, Federal Appalachian Regional Commission and Economical Development Commission and Economic Development Administration Grants.
