College of Charleston renovation projects win final state approval

COLUMBIA — A trio of College of Charleston renovation projects won final state approval Tuesday.

The work, worth $15.7 million in all, includes dealing with mold and water leaks in the Rutledge Rivers Residence Hall, a 100-bed dorm for honors students that has been closed since 2013.

Projects to fix up the college’s maintenance building on Calhoun Street and to put offices in a historic house at 11 Glebe St. were also approved.

The three renovations are expected to be completed in 2016.

The spending, paid with student fees, was approved unanimously by the state Budget and Control Board without discussion.
