Leopardo recently completed the new $25M state-of-the-industry Midwest region campus for Universal Technical Institute (UTI), a nationwide provider of technical education training for automotive technicians. Project highlights include:

  • Two-story, three interconnecting buildings totaling 185,000-SF for 1,500 students and 200 staff
  • Shop/auto laboratories for hands on training, classrooms, administrative space, multi-purpose room, resource center, student store and student lounge
  • Extensive 20 acre site development which includes complete structural demolition of existing building including foundations, site utility relocation
  • Load bearing and architectural precast
  • All laboratories and classrooms were thoughtfully sited to maximize exposure to natural sunlight
  • Central laboratory space, the “high bay,” anchors the three buildings and serves as a focal point for the campus both internally and externally
  • All MEP systems were design-build to UTI’s specific technical needs
