Central Georgia Technical College will break ground this Friday, July 29, to commemorate the construction of the Center for Health Sciences.
The new facility will allow for expansion of Health Technology programs, Academic Success Center, the College’s tutoring center, Work Force Development Center, administrative offices and expanded library. Several new Health Technology programs will be housed in the facility including neuromuscular therapy, pharmacy technology, health care specialist and clinical laboratory technology. All current Health Technology classes in the main building will move to the new building. The 68,000 square feet of space left will be used for expansion of the administrative offices, financial aid, career services, admissions and student affairs while giving the adult education program a permanent location. The space will also create space for programs including drafting, water quality and wastewater treatment, early childhood care and education and criminal justice.
The $17 million construction project of the 77,700 square foot facility is slated to begin by August 30, and classes are expected to be offered in January 2013. The new facility will accommodate an additional 1,600 students on the Milledgeville Campus.
“This project has been in the works for quite some time, and we are excited to begin this phase of the College’s development,” said CGTC President Dr. Michael Moye.
