Wake Tech RTP Building


Clancy & Theys Construction Company completed a Construction Manager at Risk for RTP Campus, Building 1. This first building, the flagship of the new RTP campus, is nearly 110,000 SF and has a cantilevered marquee announcing “WTCC.” Fine finishes such as terrazzo floors and Rulon wall systems underscore the quality of a Class A environment for the students. Centering the building is a two-story atrium with a monumental staircase featuring glass handrails and terrazzo treads. The structure, constructed with steel frame and concrete slabs over a basement regional plant, will be skinned with brick, curtain wall, storefront, metal panels, and will have sunscreens.

Infrastructure includes extensive site work on the 25-acre site, parking, permanent storm water management structures, and a widening/improvement of NC 54 and Watkins Road (with traffic signals). When completed, the building will serve as the regional plant to provide hot and chilled water for future buildings on campus—with (2) each cooling towers, chillers, and boilers with the capacity to add to the system in the future. The building will also include underground runs of piping as well as a communications duct bank that will be extended past the building’s footprint, terminated, and capped for future campus development.
