UNC-Wilmington has issued a Notice of Intent to Award to Thomas Construction Group for the renovations of the Computer Information Systems (CIS) building on campus. The contract is currently being reviewed by the State Construction Office with a project kick-off meeting scheduled for mid- to late-August.

The project consists of the demolition of the existing exterior terrace/canopy and construction of a new two-story exterior terrace to provide students and faculty with lounge seating and communal furniture.  It will also allow for easier interior/exterior access to the Congdon building.  Additional modifications call for removal of portions of the walls beneath the staircase to create a pass-through to space behind and a new study room.
