Piedmont Natural Gas To Open New LEED-Certified Operations Facility In Rockingham, N.C.

ROCKINGHAM, N.C., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Piedmont Natural Gas (NYSE: PNY) today announced plans to relocate its 36 employees in Rockingham to a newly renovated, LEED-certified facility in Rockingham West Industrial Park. The new building will replace the current Rockingham resource center and become Piedmont's third LEED-certified facility under the United States Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED rating system. Piedmont plans to begin renovations on the new facility by late July 2013, with plans to have it fully operational by spring 2014.

"Our new LEED-certified facility in Rockingham will not only help us to become better stewards of the resources we all share, it also will offer our local teammates a more effective working environment," said Kevin O'Hara, senior vice president for Piedmont Natural Gas. "We are committed to making positive contributions to the communities we serve and to their local economies. We are grateful and excited for the opportunity to make this investment in Rockingham, and we look forward to growing with this community for many years to come."

Piedmont's Rockingham facility will bring the Company's total number of LEED-certified facilities to three, joining locations in Tarboro, N.C., and Nashville, Tenn.

The new, 40,000-square-foot building sits on more than 15 acres of land. The additional space will allow for necessary expansion and provide Piedmont Natural Gas with much-needed storage space for new and ongoing projects. Piedmont employees will work with design and architecture consultants to design both the interior and exterior of the new facility.
