On Monday, July 23rd, we celebrated the groundbreaking of the NCDA&CS Agricultural Sciences Center at the construction site on the corner of Reedy Creek and Edwards Mill roads. Attendees included Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, Senator Brent Jackson, Representative Jimmy Dixon, and Consumer Protection Assistant Commissioner Joe Reardon. These are just a few individuals who made this project possible and advocated for its inclusion in the Connect NC Bond.
This new, landmark project will be 220,000 square feet and have 3 levels. The design of the building includes an administrative wing and a separate laboratory wing with isolation of air systems. Our design team has paid particular attention to functionality and efficiency of workflow for the 200 NCDA&CS employees who will occupy the building. These employees have been a critical part of the design process and our best resource for the design of this building. HH Architecture is proud to be the designers of the NCDA&CS Agricultural Sciences Center along with our team of consultants including Integrated Design, HERA Laboratory Planners, Stanford White, Stewart, and MBP. The construction will be completed by Dunn/Loving, a joint venture between JE Dunn and TA Loving.
