The new building will occupy a prominent site in the college quad and the existing building will be demolished.

The program for the new building includes teaching laboratories for the sciences, maker spaces for engineering, classrooms, storage and support areas, and faculty and departmental administration office spaces. 

The center will serve as an incubator for ideas for new technologies and aims to have as low a carbon footprint as possible, Cape Cod Community College President John Cox said.

"It was a great day for the college and for the entire Cape Cod community," said Coastal Engineering President/CEO John Bologna. "The new Science and Engineering Building will provide opportunities for students wishing to pursue affordable college education and training in the much needed STEM fields. Congratulations to college President John Cox, the Board of Trustees, and the sponsors of the 4C's Educational Foundation on bringing this project to fruition."
