During the next few days the beginning phases of the long-anticipated Building 7 remodel will start at the Rock Creek Campus. Safety fences, gravel pathways and tree removal will be among the first steps in this process.
Nine trees have been identified for removal. Rock Creek’s General contractor Fortis Construction is in contact with members of the Art Department and with Building Construction Technology Program to see that all reasonable efforts are made to salvage and recycle all usable lumber. New trees will be planted around Building 7 as soon as the weather and construction traffic allows.
Tree removal can be difficult, but of the nine trees that are to be cut down, one is diseased and the others are so close to the building that removing them for construction expansion is the only option.
