Black Hawk College Plans Major Renovation

this how Building 3 will look after the renovation project.

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.
