Community college reuse project aims for higher efficiency in North Carolina

November 10, 2011 |

Randolph Community College in Asheboro, N.C., is renovating its Continuing Education & Industrial Center. General contractor Hodgin Construction and Smith Sinnett Architecture will collaborate on the execution of this adaptive reuse project, which involves converting a 46,000-sf warehouse into a multi-use facility for industrial training, professional development, and continuing education. The center will be the first LEED-certified building for the college, as well as the first LEED educational building in Randolph County. Reusing about 95% of the existing shell, the Building Team will also reduce the center’s energy consumption by 42% and install low-flow water fixtures to meet efficiency goals.
