Update from the North Carolina History and Education Center construction site

This is an update from Tryon Palace

"Progress continues at a steady pace for the North Carolina History and Education Center. While the crane continues to hammer down the remaining 50 foundation pilings, some other exciting things are happening.

Foundation walls on the north side of the project are being erected, and on the south side facing the water a 35,000 gallon cistern is being built. Rain from the roofs will be collected in the cistern and reused for irrigating landscape throughout the site.

We are committed to our efforts to go "green". Our project will be one of the few certified LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) museums in North Carolina. Stay tuned for future updates!

This cistern will be a key element as we go "green"!

Foundation walls go up for the North Carolina History and Education Center."

We are thrilled that this project is moving along. Other large projects under contruction as we speak are the garden of the First Baptist Church at the corner of Pollock & Middle Street, Broad Street median strip, the Trent River Bridge, the renovation of the Elks Building and the renovation of the Vault on Pollock. - Jan Francoeur
