December 4th, 2014
RALEIGH, N.C. (December 4, 2014) - Wake Tech Community College officially opened its newest building on Main Campus today, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Elected officials, business leaders, college trustees and educators joined Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott to celebrate the opening of Montague Hall. The new administration/classroom building honors Harvey L. Montague, the longest-serving member of the Wake Tech Board of Trustees and its current chair, as well as his wife, Texanna. Special guests included former Wake Tech President Dr. Bruce Howell. Montague Hall was constructed by Balfour Beatty to help Wake Tech meet the community’s growing demand for education and training.
“Montague Hall will help us expand our commitment to the people of Wake County,” said Dr. Scott. “Wake Tech helps companies grow and create jobs – and we help people begin or transform their careers. We are changing lives every day.”
“This is a proud moment for the Montague family,” said Harvey Montague. “We are thrilled to be able to contribute to the mission of Wake Tech, which is jobs, jobs, jobs.”
At approximately 48,000 square feet, Montague Hall houses the administrative offices for Curriculum and Continuing Education Services, the President’s Office, the Wake Tech Foundation, Human Resources, Communications, the Business Office, and Facilities Wake Tech's previous administrative building holding hall is being renovated and reverted back to its original purpose: a classroom building to serve more students.
Montague Hall was designed and built to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification standards from the U.S. Green Building Council. It includes many features designed to increase sustainability, including drought-resistant landscaping, low-flow faucets, and sensors that turn lights off and on.
