(Woodstock, Ga. – July 29, 2013) Chattahoochee Technical College Woodstock Campus will be going through some much needed renovations starting in August. Scheduled to close temporarily August 8, the project is anticipated to take approximately 18 months to complete with a reopening in 2015.
The campus, which is one of eight operated by Georgia’s largest technical college, is the college’s oldest facility. Located in the former home of Woodstock Elementary School, the main building was constructed early in the 20th century and still maintains many of the architectural details from that time. It first became a part of the technical college when it opened for classes in 2004 under Appalachian Technical College before the 2009 merger that brought the college together with Chattahoochee Technical College.
The campus currently consists of two buildings and has most recently featured general education classes, as well as classes from the Early Childhood Care and Education, Business Management and Criminal Justice Technology programs. Those classes and the instructors who held offices at the Woodstock Campus will be temporarily relocated to the college’s Canton Campus and the North Metro Campus in Acworth.
The project will be completed with $5.2 million in funds appropriated by the Georgia State Legislature in 2011. Among the projects highlights are renovations to the roof, HVAC system, windows and updating the facility’s restroom and plumbing. Renovations to the former gym and cafeteria interiors are not a part of this project.
