Final phase of Maritime Center construction under way

PRESS RELEASE

The San Jacinto College Maritime Technology and Training Center is in its final phase of construction before its January 2016 debut. Construction has been ongoing since last Fall. The facility will serve as the site for certificate and associate degree maritime training delivered through U.S. Coast Guard-required and approved course work.

The following list provides information on the final phase of the progress of the San Jacinto College Maritime Technology and Training Center:

Relocation of the three full-mission ships bridge simulators has been completed. (Setup time frame is approximately three weeks.)

Continuation of running data and electrical

Building and exterior cleanup

Landscape, approximately 90 percent complete

Davit to be moved in the near future

Testing of the electrical and plumbing system

HVAC installation complete

All maritime staff and faculty will begin moving from the maritime training facility in Pasadena to the new Maritime Technology and Training Center based in La Porte in December.

About the Training Center

The San Jacinto College Maritime Technology and Training Center, located at 3700 Old Highway 146 in La Porte, Texas, sits 14 feet above ground. The ground level showcases a training dock with lifeboats, davits, and fast rescue craft, and a separate industry dock for crew changes. This also allows for vessel specific training for local maritime companies and serves as an aquatic training facility for sea survival and life raft training, complete with men’s and women’s locker rooms.

There are 15 classrooms; engineering simulators to train maritime engineers for hydraulic, electric, pump control, motor control, heating and air conditioning, and refrigeration; and a multipurpose space for industry conferences and corporate partner meetings.

Highlights of the new facility include the three ships bridge simulators, donated by the Houston Pilots in 2013. These room-sized replicas of ship control bridges are a part of a 3,748 square-foot simulation suite, complete with instructor stations, debrief classrooms, and development stations.

A full-mission engine room simulator is planned for the future and will interact and interconnect with the bridge simulators to allow vessel management exercises to accommodate deck and engineering officers and crew at the same time, in the same scenario.

Tellepsen Builders serve as the general contractor for the development of the Maritime Technology and Training Center. Texas IBI Group is the architect; Brooks & Sparks is the civil engineer; and Rizzo & Associates is the program manager.
