Current Construction Projects

STEM Building

Construction on the new STEM building began in June 2010. When completed, the new STEM facility will provide approximately 65,000 square feet of laboratories, classrooms, and faculty offices in a five-story structure to be built between the existing Science and Classroom Buildings, which will also be renovated. The STEM building will contain green roof components, as well as solar, wind, and geothermal energy components. Estimated date of completion is December 2011.

Kepler Theater Renovation and Expansion

In December 2010, HCC began renovating the Kepler Theater. This renovation includes an addition that will house a dance studio, gallery, classrooms, practice rooms, art rooms, and faculty offices. The renovation space will also include expanded dressing rooms, a costume shop, and extended wardrobe storage.

This project is going to cause the greatest change in how faculty and students access campus during the construction period. We understand the inconvenience that this has on the college community and are working hard to provide the least disruptive and safest temporary access route around the Kepler Theater construction site.
