Construction Begins on EPCC Architecture Building

El Paso Community College (EPCC) hosted a Groundbreaking Ceremony on May 12, 2016 at its Valle Verde campus. The event celebrated the beginning of construction on its Architecture Building.

The building is a partnership between the Architecture programs of EPCC and Texas Tech University (TTU). Dignitaries from both schools participated in the ceremony.

The building will comprise 19,606 square feet and be built at a cost of $4,041,900. The architect is Alvidrez Architecture Inc. with input from EPCC students.

Construction will be done by Baines General Contractors. The structure is expected to be completed in February, 2017.

Architecture students will have the opportunity to receive an associate’s degree from EPCC and continue onto TTU’s upper-level Architecture program in the same building.
