CM Black Projects Moving Toward Completion

CM Black Construction Company is wrapping up a busy 2010, completing two buildings and maintaining progress on a third project.

CM Black is expected to complete a new residence hall at Wingate University December 15th. That residence hall 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 at Wingate.

The completion of that building while staying on schedule has been a point of pride for CM Black. The project will be completed 20 percent faster than typical residence halls of similar dimensions, after Wingate University needed the facility to meet an unprecedented student population at the school. Wingate had its largest freshman class ever in the fall of 2010, and needed the building constructed in less than six months.

CM Black has finished the renovation for Southern Select Community Credit Union. That building, which is located off N.C. 3 in Cabarrus County, was completed November 30th.

CM Black’s biggest current project, the Levine College of Health Sciences Building at Wingate University, is also on schedule and under budget. Construction began on that building in February, and it is expected to be completed by the spring of 2011. That building includes more than 69,000 square feet of space and will also house the School of Pharmacy at Wingate.

“We are pleased that we have been able to continue our reputation as a builder who gets projects done on time,” Emmitt Black said. “That’s a credit to everyone involved in our projects, and it shows the commitment and dedication that our staff has to delivering high quality work even with a challenging schedule.”
