Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for CIT Building, Facilities Services Complex Set for Thursday
WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on campus May 3 for the new Construction and Industrial Technology (CIT) Building and Facilities Services Complex.
The ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. in the lobby of the 58,000-square-foot CIT Building, which is located on Warren Drive, west of Reedy Branch Road on property the college purchased in 1992 for expansion purposes. The 28,000-square-foot maintenance complex is nearby.
At a cost of $8.5 million, the CIT Building will now serve as the home of Pitt’s Automotive Systems Technology and Building Construction Technology curricula. The structure features several automotive laboratories and work bays as well as carpentry shops, classrooms and faculty offices.
The Facilities Services Complex was completed in 2011 at a cost of $4.2 million. The single-story building features a maintenance staff headquarters, mail room, shipping and receiving department, purchasing department, and several storage areas.
Funding for the construction of both buildings was provided through a quarter-cent sales tax increase Pitt County voters approved in 2007.
Thursday’s ribbon-cutting event is open to the public.
