UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Chiller Plant approved for construction by Trustees

The UNCG Board of Trustees last week approved the exterior design plans and authorized construction for the new chiller plant on the southern part of campus.

The new South Chiller Plant is scheduled to be constructed Spring 2018 – Spring 2019, to complement the one already on the north side of campus (part of the McIver Deck.)

The new chiller plant will be located at the corner of Forest Street and Oakland Avenue.

The south Chiller Plant will provide capacity for the Nursing and Instructional Building and enhance reliability of the entire campus’ chilled water system. The new plant will help feed chilled water to mechanical units on campus through underground lines, increasing capacity as the amount of campus space that need to be cooled has increased in recent years.

This chiller plant will need to be in place before the new Nursing and Instructional Building opens. See an update on the current McIver Building and future Nursing and Instructional Building in the next Campus Weekly.
