Tarrant County College’s Renovation and Expansion Formally Underway

Tarrant County College’s renovation and expansion of its 445,000-square-foot Northwest Campus is underway. Gensler is providing architectural design services to enhance the student experience and the campus’ learning environment.

Design work consists of “re-skinning” three existing buildings and the construction of four new ones. This approach will expand campus programs to incorporate an early college high school, classrooms and specialty labs, visitor welcome and administration, onboarding, and fine arts, learning commons, theater, music, and multifunction spaces.

A unique new design based on 21st century learning and the TCC student experience, each building’s identity is shaped by regional landscapes and is the backbone of wayfinding inspired by local Texas iconology. Additionally, knowing that 60% of learning occurs outside the classroom, the campus will integrate a variety of flexible environments to accommodate the different learning styles.

When complete in 2025, the campus will dramatically embrace the student experience and showcase an academic environment that encourages clarity, connectivity, community, identity, efficiency, and stewardship.

Huckabee and Skanska are also serving as the architect of record and contractor, respectively, on the project.
