Central Piedmont Community College plans to break ground Wednesday on its biggest building yet, a new classroom facility on its Central Campus in Elizabeth.
The $56.1 million building is funded through 2013 Mecklenburg County bonds. Totaling 154,000 square feet, the new building is larger than the Overcash Building on Central Campus, currently the school’s largest. The new building will be located on the main quad, near Sam Ryburn Walk.
The new building is set to open in January 2020 for classes. The facility will include 23 standard classrooms, 29 computer classrooms, a 200-seat auditorium, six labs and offices.
Rodgers Builders is the general contractor and Bergmann Associates is the architect for the project.
