The 75,000 square foot building will house classrooms, labs, a biology center, and a STEM learning center.

It will cost more than $16 million to build and equip. That money comes from funding from the more than $19 million bond Pitt County voters approved back in 2013.

The new facility will help more students enter the bio-tech field at Pitt.

PCC currently uses the Tech Enterprise Center of Eastern North Carolina in Greenville for biotechnology training.

The county-owned facility was supposed to be a short-term arrangement when the deal was made 12 years ago.
