New Health Sciences and Biology Building

You’ve probably noticed we have some construction happening around campus. Please excuse our dust and the noise – we’re busy building a bright future for our students!

We’re excited about launching the Health Sciences and Biology building in 2021, and want to keep you up to date on what to expect as we continue to make our campus better positioned to serve our students and community in the 21st century.

More About the Project

The 175,000-square-foot, four-story facility will support the School of Health Sciences as well as the Biology department. Academic and student space will include laboratories, a greenhouse, computer labs, classrooms, lounge areas, and study and meeting rooms. The facility will be situated on a 4-acre site on the 230-acre campus. Construction requires demolition of two buildings and the rerouting of Ring Road. The $117 million project – part of the college's 10-year Facilities Master Plan – should be complete in August 2021.

Current Impact on Campus

Those Involved

The project’s architects are SmithGroupJJR and construction is the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company. This project is funded by the state of Maryland, Anne Arundel County and Anne Arundel Community College.

Friendly to the Environment

AACC is working toward gaining LEED® Silver certification – a rating on the environmental friendliness of the building from the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED certification means healthier, more productive places, reduced stress on the environment by encouraging energy- and resource-efficient buildings, and savings from increased building value, higher lease rates and decreased utility costs.
