Baton Rouge Community College is partnering with the Louisiana Community and Technical College System to identify potential cost and energy saving efficiencies for its growing midcity campus and other locations.
Opening with just one building in 1998, BRCC’s main campus has grown to 15 buildings, with additional facilities at the school’s downtown Frazier location, as well as its Small Business Training Center.
The LCTCS will team up with BRCC to install preventive maintenance programs and energy-saving measures for facilities and for operation of the central plant located on the main campus.
“Our programs and course offerings are expanding, and we are seeing an increased interest in our weekend and evening programs,” BRCC interim Chancellor James Horton said in a prepared statement. “BRCC is always looking for ways to accommodate more students on campus at different times throughout the day.”
Student headcount enrollment at BRCC has grown from 6,525 students in 2006 to 8,476 students now, with 25 program offerings.
