NC State Project #202020006

Description:   This project constructs a 600 gross square foot, non-combustible building for a future Main Distribution Frame (MDF) telecom installation to bring high-speed internet to the Lake Wheeler Road Field Labs for teaching and research. The building requires redundant mechanical systems, an emergency generator and security system, and fire protection systems to protect the integrity of the equipment located inside. The Inwood Road building site will utilize an existing gravel parking lot for access.

The building will be connected to other parts of campus through a fiber-optic network leased through MCNC, a collaborative network backbone supporting research across the state. The new MDF will connect to the Centennial Campus MDF (Partners I) and to the Central Campus MDF on Dan Allen Drive.
