Somerset Co. Technical High School construction on track; Projected to finish by July

SOMERSET COUNTY, Md. – The future is looking bright in Somerset County where construction of their new technical high school is right on track.

The new Somerset County Technical High School which broke ground a year ago will be twice the size of the building it’s replacing known as the J.M. Tawes Technology and Career Center.

Back in September, the building was just a skeleton but now they’ve put up a brick façade, placed some windows, and have already begun some interior work.

Daniele Haley, the Supervisor for Facilities and Capital Planning says, “A lot of electric, a lot of plumbing, a lot of infrastructure still ongoing but the building is really starting to take shape and we’re doing what we call closing in the envelope of the building just in time for the winter weather.”

The project is expected to finished by July.

We’re told the new building will give students the opportunity to take on traditional trades plus experience more technical programs such as pre-engineering, project lead the way, and bioengineering.
