Spanning an impressive 99,500 square feet across three floors, the new building is designed to accommodate up to 1,000 students. It encompasses five traditional classrooms, 18 state-of-the-art computer labs, specialized technical labs, a cutting-edge recording studio, and a dynamic motion capture lab, showcasing a commitment to fostering innovation in education. CPPI is partnered with DLR Group on the project.

With a focus on supporting the region’s educational landscape, CPPI is proud to contribute to the growth of the Orange Technical College curriculum. The project also introduces exterior enhancements to the campus, including a new drop-off loop, parking lot, and corresponding landscaping, enhancing functionality and aesthetics.

The Orange Technical College – East Campus expansion aligns with CPPI’s commitment to enhancing educational infrastructure and fostering a collaborative learning environment.
