Mitchell breaks ground on new Health Sciences Building
Mitchell Community College administration, employees, dignitaries and friends of the college celebrated the groundbreaking for Mitchell’s new Health Sciences Building on Tuesday, October 16.
Mitchell’s new Health Sciences Building, funded in part by the 2014 Iredell County Bond Referendum, will be located on the College’s Cherry Street and former Davis Hospital properties. The facility will house innovative lab and classroom space for the College’s health sciences programs. This expansion will increase Mitchell’s property by eight acres, almost doubling the College’s downtown Statesville footprint. The general contractor is Hickory Construction Company and the project architect is EYP Architecture & Engineering. Construction is scheduled to take no more than 400 days from the first breaking of ground with an anticipated completion date in fall 2019. The College anticipates fully opening the building to students in the Spring 2020 semester.
