Expansion Planned for Perry Tech

For the first time ever, Yakima’s Perry Tech is launching a Capital Campaign.

Over the last seven years, Perry Technical Institute has experienced phenomenal growth – the student body has grown by 85%.

Perry President Christine Cote says “In order to continue to grow, we must expand our campus.”

The goal of the capital campaign is to raise the $7.5 million needed to construct a 34,500-square foot building on the northeast corner of campus. The new building will be named Plath Hall in honor of the longtime support of the late Fred Plath and his wife, Dorothy. Plath Hall will provide a new home for Perry’s Instrumentation & Industrial Automation Technology Program, allow for expansion of the Electrical, Welding and Machine programs, and free up space for the addition of new training programs.

Designed by the Yakima firm of Brockway, Opfer, Raab Architecture, the facility will mimic the industrial nature of the Perry campus with a functional, no-frills design. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2014. Students from Perry’s Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning/Refrigeration Technology, Information Technology & Communication Systems, and Electrical Technology programs will work on construction of the new building. This reduces construction costs while providing a practical training ground for students in these three programs.
