A legacy Continued
From a premier industry leader to helping the next generation,
the PIE Center is helping raise up the community of Bradley County
American Uniforms Legacy
In 2006 American Uniform closed and moved offshore leaving a structurally strong, well-built shelled facility. Bradley County Schools along with the county commission and regional partners are now in process of retrofitting this site to continue to serve our community with economic and workforce development for future generations.
The Story Continues
In July 2017, the Bradley County Commission purchased a 271,000 square foot facility on thirteen acres known as a Brownfield property and previously known as the American Uniform Building.
PIE Innovation Center Groundbreaking
On Tuesday, August 4th, Bradley County Schools and Governor Bill Lee took part at PIE Innovation Center Groundbreaking.
Opening doors to students
The PIE Innovation Center is currently in the building design phase, with an expected construction schedule to be released in the next 3 to 4 weeks for the phase 1 occupancy of 3 tenants.
Currently, GOAL Academy has already moved into its new home at the PIE Center.
LOOKING TOWARDS THE FUTURE
The PIE Innovation Center is a planned workforce development center that will allow juniors and seniors enrolled in Bradley County schools as well as Polk County Schools (with plans of expansion to Meigs, McMinn, and North Hamilton County Schools) to receive training in a variety of career fields. The center will collaborate with local business, industry, and community partners to provide learning opportunities for both college and career-bound students through a combination of STEM classroom instruction, skill development, and on-the-job training.
