Project description: OTC spokesman Mark Miller said the college plans to fund the project by moving its Center for Workforce Development from the south side of Chestnut Expressway as well as its fine arts department from the third floor of Gillioz Theatre. Both programs are in lease arrangements totaling about $80,000 a year. Miller said the savings over about 15 years would pay for the new building on campus. It’s a pre-engineered metal structure to house 18 welding labs, storage and warehousing, according to the building permit on file with the city. Miller said OTC fine arts will be integrated in other campus buildings and one workforce employee will work in the Workforce Training Center. Other workforce staff moved to the Missouri Career Center a few years ago, he said.
