Our contractor, RiteLite Signs, Inc is hard at work making their renderings come to life. Both of the new signs at South Campus will be lite at night, and the large sign will have the ability to display messages.

The first rending is the new lite sign that will site on top of the hill. It will be able to be seen as turn on Trinity Church, once completed.

Construction Update: Week of October 6 – October 10

Monteith Construction has mobilized onsite, and has begun work to prepare for the construction of the 2010 Rowan County Bond funded North Campus Additions & Renovations Project.  Plans have been approved by Rowan County Building Department and the Fire Marshall, and Building Permits have been issued.

The parking lots at Building 300 and 600 are now closed for construction of the Building 600 addition. To provide additional parking spaces for faculty and staff the temporary parking lot across from Building 700 is now open.  We ask that all students, faculty, staff, and vistors remain outside the construction site which is fenced for their safety.  Please be aware of your surroundings, particularly in Building 600, where egress routes have been changed to allow for the construction.  Signage has been installed to guide you out of the building safely in the event of an emergency.

Construction Update: Week of September 29 – October 3

North Campus renovations are really getting underway! The parking lot near Building 600 is now closed. A new parking area has been created at the former fire training grounds (across from Building 700). You and your students may wish to allow more time to find parking when you arrive on campus.

The courtyard between Buildings 300, 500 and 600 is also now closed, however, a protected walkway is in place between 500, 600 and the upper courtyard (between Buildings 100 & 200). The courtyard entrances to Buildings 500 and 600 will remain open and accessible from the protected walkway. Similarly, the Building 600 exterior stairwell will remain open and accessible from the protected walkway. Please stay alert as construction will very much be occurring. Please remind your students to be careful on campus as well.

Unfortunately, the price we will pay for our newly renovated spaces will be inconvenience. During the next few years, please bear with us. We greatly appreciate your patience and flexibility during this challenging time. We promise it will be worth the trouble!

Construction Update: Week of May 12 – May 16

As you know, we’ve been discussing construction for a long time. The planning process has been meticulous and has taken us a good bit of time. We are finally seeing that planning turn into reality! Beginning this summer, construction projects on both North and South Campuses will kick into high gear. These projects will impact all of us. The projects will also be constantly in motion and the situations for each project could change daily.

For your safety, please take note of the signage that you see related to room, entrance or building closures. Also, please visit this website frequently to learn about these changes and see progress as it is occurring.

On North Campus, construction in Building 300 will be underway shortly. If you recall, we are turning this space into classrooms. In order to maintain our accessibility on North Campus, a ramp behind Building 500 is being constructed for access to an elevator. The ramp will be finished in the next two weeks, and we expect to begin the renovation to Building 300 on June 1. Similarly, the parking lot near Building 300 will also close as of June. Handicap parking spots that were found in that lot will be shifted to behind Building 200. Please check www.rccc.edu/facilities/ for a map of alternative accessible routes and other information in the coming weeks.

Additionally, for those of you who are not on campus during the summer, when you return in the fall you will find the parking lot near Building 600 to be closed. Building 600 renovations will close the large parking lot near Building 600 through at least the end of 2015.

On South Campus, we are creating a Navigation Station in Building 1000 that is comparable to that in Building 100 on North Campus. The renovations to the Navigation Station and its services will begin shortly and continue through the end of the calendar year. In preparation for this, most of the Navigation Station services have moved to the bottom (first) floor of Building 1000.

  • Navigation Station –Room 101 
  • Financial Aid – Room 102A 
  • Counseling & Career Services – various offices on first floor 
  • Admissions – various office on first floor

As is the current process, student/community members will still check-in at the Navigation Station first.

The 204 testing room will be closed, and all testing services will have to run out of 202. Consequently, testing schedules will be altered in order to accommodate all of the testing that takes place in the center. The only services to remain on 2nd floor are the Academic and Career Advising (ACA) Center, which will remain in their current location of 209, and the Cooperative Education and security services found in Room 201.

Additionally, new campus identification signage (large outdoor sign) is in the works and should appear at North, South and CBTC sometime soon. We expect to see this new signage at South Campus in early fall first. Finally, the Fire & Emergency Services Training Facility is nearly complete. We will begin “tempering” the building within the next month with small fires. It will then be open for training later this summer.

If you aren’t on campus this summer, you will return to a beehive of activity this fall. Unfortunately, the price we will pay for our newly renovated spaces will be inconvenience. During the next few years, please bear with us. We greatly appreciate your patience and flexibility during this challenging time. We promise it will be worth the trouble!
