Project Type


UNC Chapel Hill’s Central Campus Athletics Project was designed to provide additional practice fields to their football team – primarily an indoor facility – as well as a renovation to their soccer stadium. As part of this construction, CCI was awarded a contract to replace and relocate underground chilled water lines and a steam tunnel to avoid the footprint of the new building and concourse. The chilled water work consisted of approx. 350 LF of parallel 18” RJDIP, butterfly valves, thrust block and multiple tie-ins to existing lines. Steam work included not only the demolition and abatement of existing tunnel, but the up-sizing of approx. 100 LF of new, larger tunnel with CIP base and precast tops. The majority of CCI’s work took place in a 30’ corridor between 2 occupied dorms and in one of the campus’ busiest roadways which required extensive planning, coordination and safety measures.
