Construction projects under way at Davie Campus of Davidson County Community College

Students returning for fall classes on the Davie Campus of Davidson County Community College Aug. 18 will see that construction projects are well under way and the campus has changed since they left for summer break.
A major addition to the Laboratory Building is on schedule, as is the conversion of the first floor of the Community Building to a new library.
Construction of the Laboratory Building addition and the renovation of the Community Building are approximately 75 percent complete. Both projects are under roof with electrical, plumbing and mechanical work ongoing.
“We anticipate a completion date of November 2008, which will give us a month to move in before students begin in the new facilities when spring semester opens in January 2009,” said Dr. Mary Rittling, DCCC president.
The new lab building will become the new “face” of the campus. The addition will feature a new student services area, bookstore and convenience store, large classroom, conference room and kitchen.
Both projects represent a total of 11,000 square feet of new and renovated space.
The first floor of the Community Building will be transformed to a modern library, featuring a curved history wall that will become the focal point of the facility. The wall will offer a visual history of the Davie Campus in a prominent place as library patrons check out books, videos, DVDs, books on tape and other resource materials.
Glass walls along the rear of the Community Building will provide a bright, spacious gathering spot for students at tables both indoors and outdoors. A new patio will allow students additional space to enjoy a sunny day. This area, as well as the library, will offer wireless Internet connections.
Registration for fall classes on the Davie Campus of DCCC continues on Monday, July 28, and Monday, Aug. 4, between 9 a.m. and noon and 2 to 6 p.m. The campus is located at 1205 Salisbury Road, Mocksville.
