Thanks to our Architects and Construction Crew for the GREAT work
Saccoccio & Associates and Case Construction did an absolutely beautiful job on this project. In 2010, UCAP purchased the former Engle Tire building and another adjoining small property. Demolition of the old buildings started in September 2012, and construction commenced shortly thereafter. Now, the Annex is open for use! Science... The Arts... Sports...
This is a hub of limitless possibilities.
