Guam - More upgrades are on the way for the Guam Community College. Today, GCC announced a $5 million loan from the USDA to fund the renovation and expansion of Building 100 and the construction of a classroom and DNA laboratory for the Gregorio D. Perez GPD Crime Lab.

GCC president Mary Okada told KUAM News, "The forensic lab extension will be a single story structure with approximately 1,980 square feet for classroom and laboratory and faculty offices, so that's the GCC component of that expanded facility and approximately 5,000 square feet of laboratory space for the DNA and serology for the Guam Police Department."

Okada says the $5 million loan is just one piece of the puzzle for the total project. The expansion will also house the Criminal Justice Program and cosmetology classes. Both projects will be LEED-certified facilities.
