Description:With the relocation of the Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center (SVREC) from Saginaw to Frankenmuth, an opportunity exists to enhance community education and outreach in the region and throughout the state.
The SVREC Agricultural Education Center will be used to educate people from local, regional and state agricultural communities with a wide variety of interests in agriculture. Additionally, it will accommodate agricultural industry meetings, as well as MSU teaching, research and outreach activities. This will be accomplished through distance-learning classes, field-oriented education programs and hands-on demonstrations.
The planning of the project is expected to include the construction of an approximately 11,000 square feet building with a 200-person meeting room and a large overhead door to allow entry of industrial equipment. The building will also include a 40-person classroom, a multi-purpose area with reception and educational display space, a small number of offices, bathrooms and a preparation area for catered events.
