New HVAC, Biology Labs Benefit Fallon Students

Degree-seeking students and individuals looking to earn workforce certifications will benefit from the renovations and additions underway on Western Nevada College’s Fallon campus.

Construction is nearly complete on a new Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Lab in Sage Hall Room 101.

Also, a $1 million project to renovate and expand the current Biology Lab in Virgil Hall Rooms 307 and 309 is expected to be finished by January 2022. Both projects are funded by the William N. Pennington Foundation, and the Perkins Educational Grant partially funded the HVAC Lab.
