HCC SouthShore Campus Welcomes Science and Technology Building
“We are absolutely thrilled to add this beautiful building to our campus community,” SouthShore Campus President Dr. Allen Witt said. “The addition opens new doors for our science faculty and expands learning opportunities for our students.”
Science department head Mustapha Lahrach looks forward to teaching his biology courses in the new space.
“The high-tech laboratories will bring so many more possibilities to instruction in all of the sciences,” Professor Lahrach said. “It’s an exciting time to be teaching college students.”
Like the rest of the HCC SouthShore Campus, the new science and technology building is a LEED-certified green building. The construction team for this project included architects Reynolds Smith and Hills, civil engineer Stantec, MEP consultants Volt Air and construction manager Cutler Associates. The project budget was approximately $9.8 million.
The HCC SouthShore Campus was built on a 100-year-old tomato field generously donated by the Dickman family. Since its opening in 2008, HCC’s SouthShore Campus has grown to serve more than 6,500 students. During the 2013-2014 school year, enrollment for this campus grew 7.3 percent.
Hillsborough Community College serves more than 46,000 students annually at five campuses and three centers throughout Hillsborough County. HCC is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. For additional information, visit hccfl.edu.
