The new Veterinary Technology Center is set to open in time for the start of classes on Aug. 22. The facility will house the college’s Veterinary Technology associate of science, bachelor of applied science and certificate degree programs.
“The stuff from our building here (at HEC) is moving out this week,” said Richard Flora, Dean of Veterinary Technology. “People will be out there putting things away next week. We hope by the middle of the week that the phones and the data lines will be up and running so that the staff can move out there.”
The old building is scheduled to be demolished in October.
The project has been in the works for the past five and a half years, Flora said. The center, located at 12376 Ulmerton Road, features classrooms, laboratory space, surgery and X-ray suites, a computer lab, kennels and offices.
“We’re excited about the move,” Flora said. “Every time we go out there, it’s harder to come back here because of how well-designed and beautiful the new building is.”
