In spite of encountering more than 33 days of rain delay since September 2018, construction on the Collin College campus in Wylie remains on schedule.
The full campus that will serve more than 7,000 students is being built on a 96-acre tract on Country Club Road across from the Municipal Complex. The city of Wylie donated 44 acres to the project and the college acquired the rest.
“It’s nothing short of a miracle to be where we are today,” Project Executive of Field Operations Joe Lindemann declared.
“We have great partners in our subcontractors who understand the importance of dates,” Project Executive Todd Reeves said.
Contractor at-risk for the project is Skanska USA, which priced the job at $131 million. Voters approved a $600 million Collin College bond issue last year to fund the Wylie campus, satellite campuses at Farmersville and Celina, and other improvements.
