June 18 Government Complex Boiler Plant Tour

June Meeting

Join us on Tues. June 18th for a Tour of the Downtown Complex Steam Plant by the NC Department of Administration Facilities Management Division

Have you ever left downtown Raleigh heading north on McDowell to Capital Blvd. and wondered what was behind that big wall of windows, sometimes decorated with lights at Christmas? The smokestack in the picture above is a clue. Come and tour the heart of the downtown complex government center: the boiler plant managed by the NC Department of Administration Facilities Management. This plant supplies steam and hot water to approximately 40 buildings housing NC government agencies, including the Governor, State Capital, Dept. of Environment, Green Square Museum Complex, Legislative Buildings, Archives, Agriculture, and Transportation to name a few. Learn about how this steam production and distribution system operates, is maintained, and has been improved to save energy and money for taxpayers, with a current fuel bill of over $1,000,000 a year.
