We're over halfway through the summer break and Monarch Construction continues to make incredible progress. The building construction and renovation project remains on track and on budget, with only a few minor bumps in the road like having roofing materials and equipment parts on back order. 

It's been a busy week for Monarch as they finished demo work on a few buildings around campus. The old Adult Education and storage warehouse buildings were torn down to allow for better access to OHP's front entrance. 

OHP's will utilize other buildings on campus for storage and Clark State will utilize existing buildings near the front of campus for adult education offerings. 

The new addition will house the new Cosmetology and Culinary Arts programs as well as Health Careers Academy and Education Academy. The new science labs will also be located in the new addition.
