Union County Begins Site Clearing for New Human Services Building

Posted on 03/01/16

MONROE, N.C. (March 1, 2016) --Union County began clearing land today to make way for its new Human Services Building.

The new facility will be located at the intersection of US 601 (Skyway Drive) and Concord Avenue in Monroe, N.C., on approximately 30.53 acres of land. It is targeted for completion in fall 2017. In preparation for construction, the abandoned structures on the property were demolished this morning by DARI (a D.H. Griffin Company). The site will continue to be cleared and the land will be graded before construction begins.

“We are very pleased to see this project come to life,” said Ed Goscicki, Executive Director for Union County Public Works. “This facility will be a wonderful addition to the community and it’s exciting to take these steps towards its completion.”

The new 144,000 square-foot Human Services building will house the Division of Social Services, Division of Public Health and Human Services Administration. It is replacing the existing 90,000 square-foot facility known as Union Village, currently being leased to house those departments. The facility was designed by Perkins and Will, Inc. and is being constructed by Monteith Construction Company.
