The Crossroads building has reopened after undergoing renovations over the summer.

 

Laramie County Community College students were greeted with a newly renovated Crossroads building when the semester started.

 

Rick Johnson, vice president of administration and finance, said that planning for the renovation had started back in August of 2017 and the construction started in March. The renovated Crossroads building was opened on Aug. 27.

 

Johnson said that the construction is mostly complete but that there is still furniture, wall graphics, light fixtures and a decorative metal wall panel to be put in place and that all of the final pieces should be in place by mid-October.

 

With Crossroads’ new facelift, it is no longer a mostly empty building.

 

Johnson said that the building is now occupied by the The Pantry, the IT Help Desk, Student Veterans Association, High School programs and the Student Government Association.

 

Johnson said that the building includes a student conference room and is meant to be a student collaboration center.

 

“We wanted to create a space where students could collaborate together,” Johnson said.

 

Johnson said the project cost $1,020,000, with $850,000 coming from student fee money and the rest from LCCC’s one-mill property tax.
