Corgan transformed an abandoned retail and warehouse facility into the new AmTech Career Academy. The campus serves Amarillo ISD's five existing high schools and Amarillo College, and provide a pipeline of certified skilled employees to the region from myriad programs including in health science, transportation, STEM, IT, architecture, construction, and manufacturing, visual arts, communication, robotics, public service, animal science, business, marketing and finance, culinary arts, and junior achievement.

Since the building is located on a main road in the city, it leverages the concept of "learning on display" through exterior and interior branding. Several programs provide services to the local community while spaces in the building are used by the public. Spaces are thoughtfully arranged for cross-pollination between the different strands, taking into account program specific needs.
