Classroom Modernizations 
(part of A&B Remodel/HVAC)

Project Description:

The Classroom Modernization project encompasses mockups as well as classrooms upgrades across campus. The mockups will incorporate information developed by the Classroom and Standards Programming Committees and transform the data into how our classrooms will look and function in the future. Four classrooms and one computer lab will be converted during this process and will allow us to receive feedback from faculty to make improvement in future designs. During A&B Remodel it is the intent of the college to upgrade as many classrooms as possible based on the standards developed through these mockups.

Budget: $3,200,000 

Construction Schedule: May 2016–August 2017
