North Central Michigan College will begin the renovation of its 50-year-old Main Classroom Building in 2019, in part, with $3.4 million from the State of Michigan. The College also seeks a $4 million match.
Officials say this renovation project is designed to provide students with an engaging and exciting learning environment with tools and technology to prepare them for the challenges of a dynamic, creative, entrepreneurial, digital world.
The new addition will be completed in the spring of 2020 and the building will be back to full operation late that semester.
Classes in the AD/CL will continue to be held during Winter semester 2019, but in preparation for the more intensive construction work beginning in May/June, there will be some preliminary departmental changes. The current timeline for the project is found below.
February 2019 –
May – August 2019 – The main classroom building will be vacated, with the exception of the administration area and the IT department.
It is planned that the Business Office and renovated classrooms (3) will be completed prior to the Fall 2019 semester, while the Student Services area and addition into the Harris Gardens will remain under construction through February 2020.
There will be wayfinding signage clearly posted throughout the campus. There will also be a renovation section on the ncmich.edu website that will have a campus map and other pertinent renovation project updates.
The public is encouraged to still enjoy all that the College has to offer, and the Luncheon Lectures, Community Interest Classes, and Corporate and Community Education classes will not be affected. The College encourages visitors to park behind the Library (Lot #4) or the Student and Community Resource Center (Lot #6).
