The Industrial Technology Metals Lab was a structure southwest of main campus at the corner of Avenue M and 22nd Street. It was originally one of four structures built for the Josey School of Vocational Education, a post-WWII program initiated by the university.

The building - also identified on campus maps simply as Metals Lab or Metal Shop - was a Quonset hut used for metalworking projects; it reportedly was brought to Huntsville from Brownswood [2].

It was demolished in the early 2000s; its functional successor was the Industrial Technology Building, located west of the razed property. The WASH Building was constructed at this site in 2010.
