Project Spotlight


smoke-stack-2015-11Work continues on this project to convert the university’s steam plant from coal to natural gas. Demolition of the plant’s smokestack is set to begin later this month, and the conversion project is scheduled to finish in 2016. The central steam plant serves the Knoxville and agriculture campuses and generates steam for more than 150 buildings.
