During the week of March 23, construction crews were busy breaking up concrete structures on the front lawn and moving soil to make way for the addition. Offices on the second and third floors that are located where the addition will connect to the main building were vacated and employees were relocated. Partitions are being built on the first, second and third floors and the Fine Arts stairwell to cordon off the construction zone.
During the week of March 30, demolition activities will continue on the front of the building as well as the Fine Arts Wing stairwell. Within the building, some mechanical and electrical demolition in the division office areas will begin.
The 44,000-square-foot addition and renovation of the 41-year-old Arthur F. Haley Academic Center will bring MWCC to the forefront of STEM education. A Building for the Future ceremony marking the start of the project is being scheduled for mid-spring.
