Renovation -- West Campus B Building

Print

Space in Building B will be configured as areas for the Nursing Division with classroom spaces and gathering spaces to be shared by all students and faculty members.

The Commons area will have a variety of seating spaces and types, such as lounge chairs, tables and chairs, and a lunch prep area where students will have access to a sink and microwave and can prepare their lunches or snacks. Quiet zones will allow for study, while more active areas will support student collaboration and socialization. An ATM will be considered for this area. A vending alcove will accommodate a selection of beverage and food vending machines offering a variety of food choices with healthy options. Copy machines (for a fee) will be available for student use.

A Cyber Lounge will be located near or within the Commons area and will provide students with a place to check e-mail and use computers for short periods of time. The Copy Alcove will have several copiers for students to use as needed.   A student organization room shall be located off the Commons in an enclosed room. A store room shall be located adjacent to the Commons to allow for easy access and use for functions being held in the Commons.


The Board of Regents approved partial renovation of B Building at a special Board meeting held in December, 2008. The renovation project will cost $1,134,769.00. As a result of their continued enrollment, the new classrooms in B Building will be primarily used by the Nursing Division.

 Asbestos abatement in the South end of the building was completed in January, 2009, clearing the way for renovations to begin by the Contractor. The building is scheduled for occupancy by the 2009 Fall semester.
