L building renovation starting soon

The sound of moving trucks is becoming common leading up to the Winter Break at Seminole State College's Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.
 
Before the break, the third floor of building L (right) will be vacated, affecting approximately 27 classrooms and labs as well as several faculty offices. Renovation of the building, the largest classroom facility on campus, is set to begin during the summer.
 
The project, which is being completed in phases, will start with the third floor and work down as funding becomes available. L building, which was constructed in the early 1970s, will be completely renovated and the space reconfigured.
 
The project is possible because an additional 29 classrooms and labs are opening in January in the Partnership Center, a four-story facility the College will share with the University of Central Florida. Nineteen classrooms and labs also opened in August at the Center for Public Safety, creating more space.
 
About 23 humanities and social sciences faculty with offices in L and F buildings are also moving to the Partnership Center. Other faculty affected by the renovation are moving to building F.
 
Facilities will move many tables and chairs from the top floor of building L to other spots on campus.
 
Additional details, including an estimated construction timeline, will be posted as they become available.
 
Due to decreasing state funding, this is the only major project planned at the College in 2010.
 
Other moves going on during December:
  • The Sanford/Lake Mary Campus library, which is housed on the second floor of L, will permanently relocate to the Partnership Center on March 15. The library's entire book collection is moving between Dec. 16 and Jan. 10.
  • UCF's student services is moving out of a portable (building R) and into the Partnership Center. The portable should be removed by the start of classes on Jan. 11.
  • Seminole State's student communications center is also moving to the Partnership Center. The center fields all calls from students and also is responsible for communication with current and prospective students.
