Francis Tuttle’s largest expansion to date to accommodate local and regional employers with more and better trained employees, the Rockwell 2010 project, is a part of the long-term focused Master Plan, intended to foresee and plan for future expansion needs. Infrastructure will be addressed to replace necessary utility, telecommunication and data lines, and extend current capacities to reduce construction costs for future expansion. The target date for completion of all phases of the Rockwell
2010 project is October 2011.
Francis Tuttle is building for the future, not for the present. These facilities will be in place to support economic
expansion in the years following the current downturn, and will provide for economic development for decades to come.
Public capital improvement projects are important to the local economy, especially in times when private projects are being
postponed or cancelled. In addition to providing economic development for years to come once completed, this project
will provide an economic stimulus while it is being built.
Taxpayers will receive a greater value for each dollar spent on this project due to a downturn in the price of commodity
items, and an increased competitive market among contractors.

The goals and merits of Rockwell 2010 are sound, whether the economic times are good or bad. These facilities will enable
Francis Tuttle to serve many more students in high demand training areas, and to meet the needs of local business and
industry in areas forecast for strong labor needs. Over the past 28 years, Francis Tuttle has consistently demonstrated that we
put our facilities to good use to benefit students and the Oklahoma economy. Rockwell 2010 is a great investment in the future
of Francis Tuttle and Oklahoma!
