Ribbon-cutting slated today for renovated Bridgemont

MORGANTOWN — Bridgemont Community and Technical College today will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony in celebration of completion of a $4 million renovation to Davis Hall, the 41-year-old headquarters for the college. The public is invited to attend the event, which will begin at 4 p.m. in the Davis Hall Auditorium.

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, Chancellor James Skidmore, Mayor Jim Higgins and other officials are scheduled to speak; tours and light refreshments will follow remarks.

The year-long renovation included upgrading the entire electrical wiring system throughout the 7-story building; replacement or upgrades of all major mechanical systems, including the chiller and air handler; new ceilings and lighting; total renovation of all restrooms; a new ADA-accessible side entrance; replacement of seating and audio-visual capabilities in the auditorium; and installation of new windows.

The completion of this project will make Davis Hall a more “energy-efficient, accessible building remodeled to sustain educational programs for at least another 40 years,” said Dr. Jo Harris, Bridgemont president.

Two area firms — ZMM Architects and Engineers, managers of the project, and Wiseman Construction Company, general building contractor — partnered in the project, whose funding was made available through the West Virginia Community and Technical College system bond.
