Appendix F
Description of the Centennial Campus

Slated for development over the next twenty years, the Centennial Campus of the North Carolina State University will consist of a dozen or more research clusters made up of university, corporate, and government laboratories, a hotel-conference center, retail stores, and housing situated around a central lake. The first cluster, on the north side of Lake Raleigh, is already alive with activity.

Nine major buildings are now completed or in planning/construction, based on a forward-looking infrastructure of telecommunications highways, utilities, roads, parking, stormwater system, and sanitary sewers.

Research Building I: Houses University engineering and physical sciences centers of excellence.

Research Building II: Houses corporate partners, University physical science research labs, and engineering centers of excellence.

Research Building III: Houses the National Weather Service, corporate partners, and earth and atmospheric researchers.

Research Building IV: A 70,000-square-foot, multi-tenant building for university and corporate partners in engineering, transportation, energy and environmental research.

College of Textiles Complex: Teaching, research, outreach, and administrative facilities, as well as the Model Manufacturing Center.

Corporate Research Center I: Houses the U.S. Headquarters for Power Transmission and Distribution for multinational ABB Asea Brown Boveri.

Partners Building I: An 80,000-square-foot multi-tenant building for industry and government partners in biotechnology and environmental research.

Partners Building II: A 60,000-square-foot facility to accommodate industrial and computer engineering partners.

The Engineering Graduate Research Center: A 132,000-square-foot advanced laboratory facility to house researchers in civil, electrical, mechanical, materials, computer, and software engineering.
