Randolph Community College (RCC) says that its board of trustees selected Charlotte-based Clancy & Theys Construction Co. as a general contractor for the $14.5-million Allied Health Center in Asheboro.
Clancy & Theys was the low bidder and was recommended to the board by the architect Little Diversified Architectural Consulting. An alternate contractor was approved by the board in the unlikely event that the college and state construction office cannot negotiate a contract with the first bidder — the second lowest bidder was WC Construction.
The 45,000-sq.-ft. facility will house classrooms and labs for the medical field and will sit beside the Richard Petty Education Center on the north side of Industrial Park Avenue. It will house RCC’s associate degree nursing, emergency medical services, medical assisting, and radiography programs and has been designed to include a simulated healthcare community for both inpatient and outpatient care.
The Allied Health Center will be RCC’s second LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building on campus.
A new date for the groundbreaking is expected to be announced soon.
