Central Energy Plant

Wake Technical Community College In Construction Discovery Wendell, NC 15,700 square feet Back to Projects

Wake Technical Community College is developing a new Eastern Wake campus in Wendell, North Carolina. The new campus development East of Raleigh kicked off with the design of this 15,700 square foot central energy plant and infrastructure project. The design for the energy plant will serve as a showcase of sustainable systems with easily accessible and daylit interior spaces in both the mechanical and administrative zones of the facility. Furthering the sustainability goals of Wake Tech, the facility will include complex geothermal integrated mechanical systems and rooftop photovoltaic panel arrays which will provide sustainable energy campus-wide. With color-coded mechanical systems visible from the energy plant’s classroom and control room, the building itself will serve as a teaching tool for Wake Tech students studying integrated building systems. The East Campus Central Energy Plant is a piece of key infrastructure and is the first build for the new campus. This project is anticipating three Green Globes certifications. Completion of the plant is expected in Fall 2022.
