LEWISTON, Idaho – At first glance, the inside of the new Lewis-Clark State College Schweitzer Career & Technical Education Center building appears far from finished.
Ceilings are open, exposing the ductwork in several rooms. Computer cables, boxes and wiring are visible throughout rooms. The list goes on.
The key, as the old saying goes, is that there is more than meets the eye with this 86,000-square foot structure that will serve the needs of both students and industry in the region. The inside of the building was designed with many things exposed on purpose so it can be used as a living textbook, allowing students to both see how things operate and how to work on them.
