Ridge Avenue Revitalization Project

Community College of Allegheny County

Sci-Tek provided civil and environmental engineering services for the CCAC Ridge Avenue Revitalization (Backfill) Project at the Allegheny Campus. The project involved relocation of the arts and humanities programs from the Visual Arts Building to West Hall; enhanced student development and success programs to Foerster Student Service Center; new student life, retail and activity programs to the pool level of the Physical Education Building; and updates to the student support center and bookstore spaces in the Library Building.
