The Construction of the KTTC
September 2014: Construction is complete
On Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014, the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre (KTTC) opened its doors to students. The KTTC is a new $36.6 million, 87,000-square-foot trades and technology skills training facility that is located on the College's Sutherland Campus on Brealey Drive in Peterborough.
The facility provides new space and equipment for training in areas such as carpentry, electrical, HRAC, plumbing and welding. It features state-of-the-art, sustainable shop facilities, smart-wired classrooms, and labs with the newest technology. A large open area, called the Skills Arena, allows students from a number of different trades programs to learn and train in one location, as they would on a construction site.
The KTTC has allowed Fleming to expand its trades and technology training space to accommodate more students and new programs. And through a unique partnership with education and industry, the facility will also teach and train students from regional secondary schools and local industry.
