A variety of construction projects are now underway on the HCC campus and include an expanded 450-space student parking lot, as well as the construction of a new, five-story Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) building.
Construction of the new student parking lot
In June 2010, HCC began construction on a new student parking lot in the rear of campus near the Alumni Amphitheater. The new parking lot (parking lot N) will add an additional 450 spaces to campus for use by students and is expected to be completed by September 2010.
Construction of the new STEM building
In June 2010, HCC awarded the construction contract for the new Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) building to Hess Construction and Engineering Services, Inc. Construction crews are now on campus and the project is underway.
When completed, the new STEM facility will provide approximately 65,000 square feet of laboratories, classrooms, and faculty offices in a five-story structure to be built between the existing Science and Classroom Buildings, which will also be renovated. The STEM building will contain green roof components, as well as solar, wind, and geothermal energy components.
Due to safety concerns, access to the construction site will only be open to those directly involved in the project. A perimeter fence has been put in around the construction area. Please respect the construction signs and remain outside the protective fencing.
A parking committee is working quickly to reconfigure parking on campus to accommodate the needs of our campus community during construction. Parts of K1 and K2 parking lots will be affected.
The STEM building project is scheduled to be completed in the fall 2011.
