Upgrading science, vocational and health careers educational spaces to benefit a school and a community.

Science and Nursing Laboratories
Sauk Valley Community College
Dixon, IL

Sauk Valley Community College selected Wight & Company to renovate their science, nursing, and vocational laboratory space in response to a Facility Assessment and Master Plan, which we also conducted. The renovated space reflects current trends in science, vocational, and health careers education and incorporates insights gained from a laboratory design workshop. Upgrades as part of the $3.7 million project include a new laboratory layout, equipment, support areas, independent research space, and numerous state-of-the-art technologies.

Smart Investment

Our renovations were part of a long-range plan to broadly update technology at the 47-year-old campus. The modernization of the science laboratories was an important investment in the region’s human capital. Providing better resources for students improves education and the community hopes this will attract and retain companies in need of their skills. Residents will also benefit from these updates through access to an increasingly skilled workforce.
