A Bend construction company will start soon on a multi-million dollar project at Central Oregon Community College. The Health Career Building is expected to make a big difference to students and the general public. COCC leaders just awarded the $10-million contract to HSW Builders of Bend. The 47,000 square foot building will have classrooms, medical clinics -and even rooms for a good massage. COCC spokesman Ron Paradis describes it as a cornerstone of last years bond measure: "The building is critical because we've got a lot of health career programs and they're very popular with the students. They generally lead to good family wage jobs here and throughout the state, and right now we're cramming those programs in wherever we can.” The general public will also benefit because the building will house a dental assistance office and a massage clinic right on the first floor. On December 14th HSW Builders of Bend will start underground electrical work - and they expect to finish the project by spring of 2012.
