BRUNSWICK, Maine — Southern Maine Community College is marking the start of renovation work at its new Midcoast Campus, at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station.

The South Portland college is holding a ceremony Tuesday to mark the transfer of deeds for two former Navy buildings that will become part of SMCC’s satellite campus in Brunswick. In all, the college will take over five buildings on the site now known as Brunswick Landing.

SMCC President James Ortiz will swing a sledgehammer Tuesday signifying the start of renovations to one of the buildings, which will be turned into the Maine Advanced Technology & Engineering Center.

The first classes at the campus will be offered in one of the buildings this fall. The entire campus is slated to open in the fall of 2012.
