PJC takes next step toward new Science Building


Paris – The Paris Junior College Board of Regents this week was presented with designs for a new Science and Technology Building to be construction at the north end of campus.

The design, by SHW Architects, includes an open, flexible classroom that can seat up to 120, and several classrooms that can hold 60 or 30-plus students. There would be a math center, classrooms, science labs with shared prep rooms, space for faculty and adjuncts and common space for students to gather.

Regents approved the use of the construction manager at risk method for the new building. Officials say it's the same method that allowed both the Greenville building and South Campus Residence Hall to be brought in on time and under budget.
