Project Description

The Public Safety Simulation Complex at Wake Technical Community College was built to provide reality-based training programs for law enforcement, emergency medical service, and fire rescue professionals. The complex, which is located in Wendell, North Carolina, spans approximately 70,000 square feet. Once operational, the facility will include a 4D immersive interior training village and multi-function/specialty training rooms.
