March 09, 2019

New cooling towers were loaded onto the roof of the Jerome L. Greene Science Center today in support of the construction and operation of the Columbia Business School buildings at the Manhattanville campus. 

The cooling towers were installed as part of an ongoing expansion of the Central Energy Plant, a facility that provides chilled water, high pressure steam, and electric power across the Manhattanville campus.  The plant, located below the Jerome L. Greene Science Center and Lenfest Center for the Arts, includes energy efficient dual-fuel boilers, chillers, and piping distribution under city streets.
