The Executive Council Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT), held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the completion of the north plaza during their November meeting. The north plaza project provides the MBIT community with a newly designed space to gather. The design was intentional to include more green space for collaboration.
MBIT Administrative Director, Dr. Mark Covelle says; “We are thrilled to open our newly renovated north plaza to our school community. The north plaza is part of a larger capital project to modernize and improve our building so that we can deliver another fifty years of world class career and technical education to the communities of Middle Bucks. We are grateful for the support of our Executive Committee and our four member districts: Centennial, Central Bucks, Council Rock, and New Hope – Solebury. This project is more than a renovation; as a career and technical center, students will have the opportunity to use the new space for collaboration and integration in their program areas of study. If you’d like to see the newly renovated north plaza, feel free to join us on December 1 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for our annual open house.”
Students in the Horticulture, Landscape and Design program will learn their skills alongside their instructor Mr. Greg Smith, and Facilities Manager, Mr. Warren Anders on how to design and enhance the space with landscape design.
“It is my absolute pleasure to have represented MBIT through the creation of our renovated main entrance plaza. The fresh new design is safer, more functional as well as visually appealing. Special thanks to contractors, faculty and staff, as well as the transportation directors and students who made the process swift and free of issue.” stated Mr. Warren Anders, Facilities Manager
