As part of Governor Bill Haslam’s Drive to 55 workforce development program, whose mission is focused on ensuring that more Tennessee residents are equipped with the training and certifications needed to support the State’s growing economy, this new Tennessee College of Applied Technology – Memphis satellite campus will be located in Bartlett, TN.
ANF, in partnership with Braganza design/ Group, is designing this 49,000 SF building that will be sited on 17.8 acres of undeveloped farmland at the corner of Brother Boulevard and Appling Road.
