$18 million applied technology college to be built in Lehi

Mountainland Applied Technology College plans to build an $18 million building on 18 acres in Lehi. This will be the fourth MATC, with the three campuses located in American Fork, Orem and Spanish Fork. The finished building will be 75,000 square feet. The land for the new school was purchased in 2006 for $2.3 million — $1.2 million of which was allocated by the legislature. The legislature approved the funding earlier this year using monies from President Barak Obama’s stimulus package. The Utah Division of Facilities Construction and Management is now accepting bids for the construction of the school. Construction is scheduled to begin Sept. 20 and is expected to be complete in March 2011. The Enterprise, July 13-19, 2009
