I was very impressed with the offerings to students, and the entire facility, while photographing PEAK Innovations by Turnkey Construction Management. PEAK, in Fort Smith Arkansas, is a part of Fort Smith Schools and the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith that provides hands on training in technical and career programming from companies such as ABB, HAAS and Mercy Hospital for starters (more to come). PEAK students will be taught by industry leaders in real-world scenarios on up-to-date industry specific equipment. Classes include: automation and robotics; computer integrated machining; electronics technology/industrial maintenance; emergency medical responder; medical office assistant; network engineering; and unmanned aerial systems
This facility is a one of a kind especially in the River Valley region. I was very impressed at the 'classrooms' filled with high-tech robotics, machinery and training equipment. These companies have spared no expense in teaching students and their future employees. This is phase one with considerable space still available, the next phase should be completed late this year. The contractor for this facility is Turnkey Construction along with HPM Leadership.
