Business and Industry Facility
The Business and Industry facility that will be constructed at our Macon Cove Campus is approaching the design phase. Design recommendations are scheduled for submission to the State architect by July 2015 and will subsequently be presented to the State Building Commission during its July meeting. This project has an expected completion date of Spring 2016.
Union Avenue Campus Parking Garage
The 140-space parking garage will rise behind the new Nursing, Natural Sciences and Biotechnology Building at 675 Union. The parking structure will primarily serve students and faculty using the new building.
Construction on the Parking Garage at the Union Avenue Campus has an expected completion date of January 2016.
Completion of these projects should enhance recruitment and growth and allow the College to better serve students, employers and our community.
