Guam - You may have noticed the upgrades at the Guam Community College for sometime now, and according to GCC President Dr. Mary Okada the renovations are far from over. Okada says the upgrades include finishing up the new Student Center, which she expects will be complete this October. She adds the generator building is under construction to house the generation system for the campus computers.
Other projects underway is the expansion of the Guam Police Department's Forensic Lab, as well as the renovations to the old library that Okada says will be LEED certified when it's completed at the beginning next year. She said, "When this new library was constructed we knew that this old library needed a complete renovation because we are spending a lot on maintenance and we want to make sure to put a concrete roof on it."
Okada says the upgrades are ARRA funded and are estimated to all cost some $15 million.
