Construction Plans

In this new area Piedmont Community College hopes to include a multipurpose room that will be available for theater productions, business retreats, family reunions, lecture series and additional classroom space. Other areas of the newly renovated space can be used for an additional art gallery, instructor offices and an artist-in-residence program and/or studio rentals.

To become ADA compliant, renovation of over 6,000 square feet will cost a approximately $480,000. Supplementary funding will be used for additional renovation purposes or for specific programs, such as a prospective artist-in-residence series.
