Built in the 1980's, the Northeast Texas Community College had not been renovated or updated, apart from several new buildings, since its original construction. The campus needed attention to support the high-standard educational experience the College offers. Allocating the budget effectively to establish a sense of place was a large project driver. Attention to the campus' interior plaza helped to create a sense of identity and create a sense of pride for students, faculty and the community. The richly-landscaped plaza and purposefully-placed walkways encourage pedestrian circulation and connectivity within the campus.
The campus redevelopment includes updates to the entire campus, with modifications and renovations to the University Health Science Building, Humanities Building, Math and Science Building, Administration/Student Services Building, Learning Resource Center, Instruction Annex and Building Technology Building as well as the Student Union. The modified campus brings all buildings up to code, and establishes a modern, collaborative learning environment.
