Southern Piedmont ASHRAE Tours Facebook

Proceeds benefit the YEA Institute

Southern Piedmont ASHRAE YEA organized a recent trip to tour the Facebook Data Center in Forest City, NC.  Attendees included members of ASHRAE, guests, and two students from Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. 

Facebook graciously opened their doors to us for an event that included an informative presentation on the mechanical and electrical design of several of their data centers around the world and a tour of one of the buildings on campus.  The group finished the day with lunch at Facebook’s on-site cafeteria. 

YEA would like to thank Facebook for allowing the group to tour their facility, Thermal Resource Sales for sponsoring a limo-bus, allowing us to arrive in style, and all of the attendees for showing up bright and early to make this YEA event a success.
