The contractor-at-risk on the Collin College campus under construction in Wylie, Skanska USA, held a topping out celebration last week to mark the erection of the last piece of structural steel for the 300,000 square foot project.
The program and barbecue lunch were held in what will be the conference center of the center, among I-beams and roof decking. Invited were the construction workers and officials from Collin College, the city of Wylie and Wylie Independent School District.
“Welcome to the Collin County Wylie campus,” college District President Neil Matkin said. “Everything has changed in seven short months.”
Construction started in September 2018 and is scheduled for completion in time for classes starting in September 2020. The Wylie campus, which consists of a student center, learning center, commons building and central utility plant, carries a price tag of $131 million.
