Heavy equipment from EHG Environmental and Demolition Services Company was on the site of the Veterans Life Center on September 26, 2016 to begin the demo process. The work is scheduled to be finished by the end of October, with site preparation to follow and then construction of the new building can begin.
The site is a handsome 9.2 acre plot atop a tree-scattered hill at the corner of 9th and H streets in Butner, North Carolina, which was leased to VLC by the NC Council of State. Construction funding has been realized through a HUD Community Development Block Grant. It is hoped the facility will be open in the fourth quarter of 2017.
