(This amendment provides bond funding for the project to replace the 65,000 SF replacement of the French Slaughter Building at the Locust Grove Campus of Germanna Community College and three modular buildings of 1,333 SF each. Detailed planning for the project was authorized in Chapter 759, 2016 reconvened session and is now complete. Working drawings are next in the process in order for the project to move to the construction phase. This amendment increases the VCBA Capital Construction Pool in Central Appropriations by $36.3 million, the total estimated budget for the project. The French Slaughter Building is the original 1970s era main academic and administrative building, rapidly constructed to provide academic and operational space for the then new community college. The new building will include Administrative, General Classroom, Biology Labs, Bookstore, Student Lounge and Library functions. Major instructional programs supported by the new building are Allied Health Nursing, Dental, Physical Therapy and EMS programs leading directly to employment. The new Health Sciences Building will create a new public face for Germanna Community College along Route 3 and on the interior of campus for perspective students and parents. The front entry is conceived to be an appropriately configured interior-exterior use of student space and will reinforce Master Plan initiatives for future growth. Donations of support for the project from localities in GCC’s service region and private donations have totaled $3.6 million to date. Once the working drawings are completed, they will be submitted to the Department of Engineering and Building for approval and the project will then move to the construction phase.)
