The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology has a lot to celebrate.
On Thursday it marked a major milestone as construction began on its new training facility.
It comes just weeks after SAIT celebrated its centennial on Oct. 16.
“This new facility will dramatically enhance the learning environment for SAIT students and will include the best technology available, from crane simulators to a full crane maintenance shop, to labs designed specifically for ironworkers,” said SAIT President and CEO David Ross.
The facility is being built on an eight-acre lot on 72 Street S.E.
It is slated to open in fall 2017.
