Located in a historically sensitive area of campus, this five-story combination chiller plant and 475-car parking deck provides parking relief as well as much needed cooling capacity to the northeast portion of the campus. The limited amount of available land required the integration of two separate building functions into a single structure. The building also provides separation between a pre-civil war cemetery and a student residential area, while reflecting the cultural background of the Chapel Hill campus.
