CM Black has begun construction on a new residence hall at Wingate University, continuing a relationship with the school that spans more than a decade
The new residence hall, scheduled to be completed by December, will be a three-story facility with more than 26,000 square feet. It will house 96 students once it is completed, and will be the third such residence hall constructed by CM Black on campus. CM Black previously constructed the Beam and Cannon residence halls.
The construction of the new residence hall has been necessitated by the largest freshman class in Wingate’s 114-year history. More than 600 students entered the university in August, and those students will be housed in temporary housing until the new residence hall is complete.
CM Black began the project in June, and will have the residence hall completed within six months.
“We are thrilled to once again work with Wingate as they continue to grow in the coming years,” CM Black President Emmitt Black said. “We look forward to working with them on this project and maintaining the high standards of the university.”
CM Black also has other projects in the Cabarrus/Charlotte Metro area. The construction company continues to work on the Levine College of Health Sciences Building at Wingate, which includes more than 69,000 square feet. That building, which will also house the School of Pharmacy, recently had its topping out and is scheduled to be completed by June.
CM Black also recently began an upfit for Southern Select Community Credit Union. That building, which is located off N.C. 3 in Cabarrus County, is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
