The Cape Fear Community College Board of Trustees has selected Bordeaux Construction as the general contractor for the construction of the Alston W. Burke Campus at Surf City. Construction is expected to start in Feb. 2014. As planned, the building is expected to be open to students in early to mid-2015.
CFCC President Dr. Ted D. Spring expressed his excitement about moving ahead with the construction phase of the project.
“Having a permanent home for the college in Surf City will allow Pender County residents access to college classes and job training opportunities in a more convenient location,” Dr. Spring said.
When completed, the building will be 8,000 square feet and will contain five classrooms, media center, lab and staff work area. Plans for the academic offerings to be held in the facility are also currently underway. The total project budget is set at $2.6 million.
The building was designed by LS3P architects and will be located on a 24-acre site located off of Hwy 210. The land was donated to the college by the late Alston W. Burke in 2008.
