Construction - May 3, 2016

Construction is always exciting on any new project and that was especially true as the Business Development Center started to take shape. In May 2016, GPTC Administration and Board Members had a chance to walk through the construction site and review progress.  A special thanks to Jack Whiteman, GPTC Director of Purchasing and Maintenance and Misty Buchanan, Renaissance Architects Construction Administrator, for their hard work and commitment during the construction process that made this project a great success.
