As discussed at the May Board of Trustees meeting, the scope of this project must be reduced in order for the project to fit within the amended funding approved by the Alamance County Commissioner’s at their February 2022 meeting. A revised 3-1 will be recommended for approval at the June Board of Trustees meeting with a total revised budget of $3,536,070. A new 3-1 form for a new capital project, funded through SCIF funding, will be brought to the Board of Trustees June meeting for consideration. This new project will include the scope that had to be reduced from the County bond project. In the meantime, the design team continues to push forward with schematic design. The two projects, if approved, will be titled as follows:

- Main & Powell Buildings: Classroom/Lab Renovation and Nursing
Expansion Project $3,536,070
- Gee Building: First Floor and Library Renovation/Childcare Updates
Project $1,400,000

Alamance Community College expects the county bond project to bid in November with construction commencing in late December/early January. The SCIF project timeline will be finalized once a new design contract is established. As a reminder, HH Architecture is currently completing a feasibility study for the College to help determine the most appropriate use for the annual SCIF funding. Scope currently being reviewed includes improvements to the exterior of the DC campus, Main Building classroom renovations and creation of a Wellness Center for the campus.
