For decades, the Indian Hills Community College Centerville Campus consisted of a collection of small, outdated standalone instructional classroom and support buildings built as temporary structures in the 1970s. A single new academic building will replace these outdated individual buildings. The new multi-story building is nestled into a hill side with a two-story academic wing to the south, a three story social hub at the core, and a two-story high bay Career & Technology Education wing to the north that can be expanded in the future.

The central hub houses a cafe, library, success center, lounge, and wellness room. The academic wing includes classrooms, administration offices, faculty workstations and conference area, and student support spaces. The CTE wing has classrooms and labs for agriculture, construction technologies, and welding as well as a maker space and faculty offices.

Built on the same site as the existing campus, the new building is designed to accommodate phased construction in order to maintain as many existing classroom buildings as possible throughout construction.
