Black Hawk College Plans Major Renovation
A 40 million dollar renovation project will begin soon at Black Hawk College in Moline.
Chief Financial Officer Steve Frommelt says Building 3 is more than 50 years old and needs major updates.
"Building 3 will become effectively a focus on our science programs. Then we'll be converting and transitioning Building 2, which was traditionally our science-oriented classes - those will become classrooms and career and technical education programs."
He says students will benefit from being able to learn in modern facilities.
In the future, Building 3 will also house athletic and fitness facilities, the campus police office, food pantry, and faculty offices.
Completion is expected in the summer of 2024.
