Brasfield & Gorrie Begins Construction on Hendrick Center for Automotive Excellence

Building Alabama

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Automotive industry icon Rick Hendrick recently helped kick off construction of Wake Tech’s new automotive training facility with a $1 million gift from Hendrick Automotive Group and by unveiling the name, “Hendrick Center for Automotive Excellence.”

The $41.8 million, 100,000-square-foot facility on the Scott Northern Wake Campus will enable the college to more than double the number of students in its automotive systems technology program (from 90 to 200) and add a new degree program in collision repair. Skilled technicians in both areas are in high demand at local dealerships. The Hendrick Automotive Group gift will provide funds for new technology and equipment, scholarships for students, and to help recruit and retain expert faculty.

The Hendrick Center for Automotive Excellence is the first of five major expansion projects funded by last fall’s $349 million bond, which passed with 65% of the vote. The architect for the project is Gensler. The construction manager is Brasfield & Gorrie. Construction begins this month and the facility is scheduled to open for classes in the fall of 2021.
