Duke Energy CenterDuke Energy Center -SOLD OUT-

Maximum: 20 Participants per tour (tour times: 1:30 PM/2:00 PM/2:30 PM/3:00 PM) **

Towering 51 stories above grade, the Duke Energy Center is the crown jewel of Charlotte’s most sophisticated arts district. The 1.5 million square foot triple LEED Platinum-certified office tower anchors Wells Fargo’s Cultural Campus. The tower's form symbolizes a progressive yet precise crystalline image. Reaching into the sky, the tower's chiseled top culminates in a dramatic sky window with panoramic views of the Charlotte skyline and city sporting venues.

Platinum level, LEED certifications for CS, EBOM and 81% office tenant CI, attests to industry-shaping measures such as harvesting/reclaiming rain water, ground water and HVAC condensate. A park like green roof reduces storm water runoff and alleviates the heat island effect. Daylight harvesting blinds move with the angle of the sun to reflect light deeper into the interior and coupled with day-lighting glass, provides increased natural light. Continual air monitoring maintains proper oxygen/CO2 levels by drawing in precise amounts of fresh air. Utilizing an intelligent building network to monitor, control and analyze the sophisticated building systems made the Duke Energy Center 2010’s Smartest Building in America.

**This tour is best suited for smaller groups for more participant interaction. There are (4) separate tours of 20 persons, each tour is about 1.5 hours. Participants of this tour should meet 45 minutes prior to the tour time in the registration area of the Charlotte Convention Center.
