HUNTERSVILLE – The latest addition to Central Piedmont Community College’s Merancas Campus in Huntersville is taking shape.
Site-clearing began for the college’s Phase IV classroom building, on the eastern end of the 49-acre campus off Verhoeff Drive, in January and now the steel frame and other components are in place.
When complete, the three-story, 66,000-square-foot building will be a multi-purpose educational facility. It will include classrooms, student life services areas and conference and meeting space.
It will also feature laboratories specifically affiliated with CPCC’s transport systems, fire protection and public safety training programs.
The newest addition to the CPCC campus is in front of the Claytor Building, a 10,000-square-foot building built in 1990 as the first building on what was then called CPCC’s North Campus. The creation of additional campus parking space is also part of the current project.
More details about the campus expansion and educational programs are available at cpcc.edu and at the Merancas Campus website.
