Description

This project provides funding for the design and construction of a new academic building (134,600 gross square feet) supporting science programs, such as biology, chemistry, computer science and cybersecurity, engineering, geology, physics, and the mathematics department, as described in the Collegewide Facilities Master Plan, 2013-2023 (2/16). The new math and science building will replace the Science South and Falcon Hall buildings, which will be demolished, and the new building will be constructed on this site. During FY18, the building was renamed to the Catherine and Isiah Leggett Math and Science Building.

Justification

Under the application of the State space guidelines, the enrollment growth on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus has resulted in a significant instructional space deficit. The Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus has a Fall 2018 laboratory space deficit of 67,128 NASF and a total space deficit of 731 NASF. The 2028 projected laboratory space deficit is 60,069 NASF and the total space deficit is anticipated to be 74,034 NASF. The construction of the math & science building will address this deficit as well as replace Science South and Falcon Hall, which are in exceedingly poor condition (as identified in the Collegewide Facilities Condition Assessment, 12/13). Relevant studies include the Montgomery College 2025 Strategic Plan, Collegewide Facilities Condition Assessment Update (12/13), and the Collegewide Facilities Master Plan Update (6/18).
