project at a glance

The 200,000 square foot Energy Production Infrastructure Center (EPIC) building at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte houses classrooms, lecture halls, conference rooms, a clean room, a high structural bay, a smart grid facility, offices, and laboratories for electrical, civil, environmental and computer research related to energy and energy delivery infrastructure. The project also includes expansion of a regional utility plant and the extension of an existing road to a signalized intersection.
 
The project employed a number of sustainable building methods to pursue LEED Silver certification. Most notably, the EPIC center is conditioned using chilled beam technology, which takes advantage of the water's efficient heat transfer coefficient, achieving temperature control through water distribution instead of air distribution. 
 
The project is an ABC of the Carolinas, Excellence in Construction  - Eagle Award and Project of the Year Nominee.
