Project Scope

The latest addition, the Information Technology Building opened in Winter of 2004. This 33,232 square foot structure houses the college's information technology programs. In addition, the college created a Center for Business Progress within the new building to help stimulate entrepreneurial activity in the region through consolidation of regional economic development entities currently administered by the College. The new 2-story Information Technology Building is made of a steel frame with a masonry veneer and rubber membrane and standing seam metal roof system. The building was built to house the various classes and administrative offices associated with the Information Technology curriculum at the college. The project also included a new office for the college President, a coffee bar, and various conferences rooms. A water feature including a fountain was also installed in the front of the building as part of the project.

Project Accomplishments

The late winter and spring of 2004 had its share of wet weather. While this was an initial concern of the project participants, the team reviewed the project schedule and committed to revisions that allowed the project to be completed over a month ahead of schedule later that year. The project was also a financial success as the project came in under the allocated budget. A true team effort was utilized to ensure the successful completion of the project.
