McKim & Creed provided civil engineering, stormwater management, local and state permitting for site construction, and general consultation and coordination for the five-story classroom building known as Union Station at Cape Fear Community College. The facility provides classrooms for general college classes, expanded health care training labs, and a student services center.
The building is located in downtown Wilmington and pays tribute to Atlantic Coast Railroad’s iconic Union Station built in 1913.
McKim & Creed was involved with the demolition of existing facilities and provided major coordination for demolition and installation of public and private utilities, extensive coordination with the City of Wilmington Planning Department, and design and permitting for the building and associated parking garage.
Union Station was the first building funded by the $164 million bond referendum passed by New Hanover County voters in November 2008. The local bond funds were being spent locally to provide more job training opportunities for the local community.
