In November 2013, construction began on a 5,600-square-foot addition to the University’s Batte Fine Arts Center, also built by CM Black Construction. The new facility, to be named Hinson Art Gallery, will house the University’s extensive art collection, including a Ben Long Fresco. The Gallery will be comprised of a conventional wood-framed structure with a brick veneer facade.

CM Black is overseeing another addition to the Fine Arts Center as well, which will house the Wingate Music Department. The new addition will include six practice rooms, two studio offices, a large rotunda lobby, vocal hall and comprehensive choral and opera library.

Finally, CM Black will complete a 7,500-square-foot renovation to an existing building on the Wingate Campus, which will house a new bookstore and restaurant for the University. The new facility will combine two existing spaces for the bookstore.

CM Black has partnered with Wingate University again, making this the 12th project the company has completed for the institution. The current project is a three-level freshman dormitory scheduled to be completed by December of this year.

The new Wingate Freshman dormitory

Past projects for the University have included the Batte Fine Arts Center,  Cannon Dorms and three residence halls, several renovation projects, the Hayes Classroom Building, and most recently the Levine College of Health Sciences Building, which was just finished last year.  To learn more about CM Black’s partnership with Wingate, check out this short video where Wingate President, Dr. Jerry McGee, discusses the successful relationship and some notable projects.

CTC Corporate Headquarters

The new CTC corporate headquarters and operations center consists of structural steel with composite metal wall panels, recessed access floors and a partial redundant electrical and HVAC system for full operation during emergency situations.

“This project was great. Most often, I was on site once a day meeting with our superintendent and other subcontractors, making sure that we performed to the satisfaction levels expected.”

Emmitt Black

“The CTC Headquarters is a good example of our work. It’s a very complex building with a multitude of subcontractors working in harmony with each other. It was successful because of our planning, team members and daily management.”

Wingate Levine College of Health Sciences Building

The 69,000 square-foot Levine College of Health Sciences facility is comprised of a structural steel frame, metal stud exterior walls, and brick veneer that is accented with pre-cast bands. Its roof is a standing seam metal roof, and the inside includes two laboratories, complete with laboratory casework. The building is targeted to receive Silver LEED certification. The three-story building houses the School of Pharmacy and Physicians Assistant at Wingate, and is one of the landmark achievements in CM Black’s 60-year history.

It also is designed to meet the highest standards in teaching with three 90-seat lecture halls, two 50-seat classrooms, clinical simulations labs, decision simulation labs, a physical assessment lab, a pharmacy practice lab, an iv admixture lab, a fitness center, food service, conference rooms, and a biomedical science library and drug information center.

The building followed strict green building requirements, as CM Black recycled nearly 90 percent of its waste, and 30 percent of its construction was done with recycled materials. The project also cut down on emissions because more than 44 percent of materials were extracted and manufactured locally. The project also had more than 83 percent of its wood FSC-certified, and also substantially enhanced its indoor air quality through specified HVAC safeguards and tactics.

“Dr. Craig Boyer told me he has personally been in 110 of the 115 pharmacy schools in America, and this building is the finest he has ever seen,” Wingate University President Jerry McGee said at the ribbon cutting for the facility. “I agree with Dr. Boyer.”

Video: College of Health Sciences Building Is Star Attraction

The Levine College of Health Sciences Building opened in August, and the 69,000 square foot building is already earning rave reviews.

The building is the centerpiece to the expanding School of Pharmacy at Wingate University, and was completed on time, and under budget.

The building includes three 90-seat lecture halls, two 50-seat classrooms, clinical simulations labs, decision simulation labs, a physical assessment lab, a pharmacy practice lab, an IV admixture lab, a fitness center, food service, conference rooms, and a biomedical science library and drug information center.

The grand opening of the building was covered by local news organizations including the Charlotte Business Journal, Charlotte Observer and WBTV.

Dr. Robert Supernaw, the dean of the School of Pharmacy at Wingate, said the building will establish Wingate as a leading institution for pharmacy students, and will make a significant impact for the university. Dr. Supernaw and Dr. Jerry McGree, the president of the university, recently talked about the building and its impact in the video above.

This 45,000 SF single-story building features a showroom, service bays and office facilities. It is a combination of pre-engineered and structural steel with metal stud framing. The exterior is made up of synthetic materials and masonry with a pre-engineered standing seam roof. Special features include imported Italian porcelain tile floors, zolatone paint and custom-built casework.

“It took a real effort to blend both pre-engineered and custom construction together. Since this was not only an automotive show room, but also the dealer’s corporate headquarters, it was very important that finished building was a real showplace.”
Emmitt Black

“Our teams really worked well on this beautifully designed project by Yates/Chreitzberg, the architect of record. The buildings seamlessly combine pre-engineered and custom construction. The finished building speaks for itself. We are now building a second dealership for Tim Marburger in Shelby, N.C.”
