June 21, 2022 – Lewis Contractors has begun work on the Community College of Baltimore County’s newest improvement project. The CCBC Essex Wellness and Athletics Center will be significantly renovated and expanded to: add a fitness center for use by students, faculty and community members; create two large dance studios; create additional support space for the College’s growing athletic programs; and furnish general fire protection upgrades throughout the facility.

Since 1957, CCBC has opened the doors to accessible, affordable, high-quality education, serving nearly 50,000 students annually at their six locations. CCBC offers degree, certificate and workplace certification programs in industries such as business, education, health care, information technology, cybersecurity, construction and transportation.

On June 15, CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis led a groundbreaking ceremony, which was attended by many local politicians, department heads and members of the CCBC Board of Trustees. The renovations and additions are anticipated to be completed in time for the start of the fall 2023 semester. Please enjoy this video of the ceremony.
