TBCC Connections – Breaking Ground for the Future

By TBCC President, Dr. Paul Jarrell

There have been many meetings held in room 214/215 at Tillamook Bay Community College. Last Tuesday, I walked into a meeting in that room at 2:00 PM, and at 2:05 PM, the meeting ended. 

During those five minutes, we received and unsealed bids from four General Contractors to complete the construction of our bond-funded Healthcare Education Building. We are excited that we have chosen a General Contractor, and the bid came in on budget. Assuming things proceed as planned, Kirby Nagelhout Construction will serve as General Contractor for the construction of our new 28,000-square-foot Healthcare Education and Community Center facility.  We are very excited about this transformation of our campus and community.

In addition to our new Health Education facility, we are also excited about the renovation of the former Mechtronics Auto Repair building at 4360 Third Street. This facility will become our new Center for Industrial Technologies.  The Center will house our Welding and Fabrication program and will provide space and equipment for advanced manufacturing, including state-of-the-art CNC machines alongside manual machining equipment.  In addition, the Center will have dedicated classroom and lab space for our Electrical and Millwright Apprenticeship programs as well as space for the development of a new Advanced Manufacturing/Robotics program. We are thrilled to be able to provide this great training facility to support workforce development for our community partners. 

Join us for a momentous occasion at Tillamook Bay Community College on June 21, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM as we break ground for the future at TBCC. This event will not only mark the beginning of construction for our innovative new facility dedicated to advancing healthcare education and provide space for community convening but will also showcase the exciting new designs of our remodeled Center for Industrial Technologies.

We are deeply honored to host distinguished college officials, esteemed public officials, and prominent dignitaries who will graciously share their insights and celebrate this significant milestone with us. Their insightful remarks will not only highlight the impact of these recent developments on our local community but will also shed light on the promising future of healthcare and industrial education at Tillamook Bay. This event promises to be a pivotal moment, underscoring our commitment to advancing educational excellence and fostering community growth.
