HIGHLIGHTS OF THE RENOVATED BUILDING
THE STEPHENSON ADMINISTRATION CENTER
In 2019, YCNGA began renovations of the building which had been built in 1942 for the former Pepsi-Cola plant. The Authority originally purchased the Greek Revival style building in 1985 and moved in after renovations were completed the following year. When the building was repainted it’s well-known ‘gas company’ blue, the Authority had 40 employees with plenty of room to grow. After 34 years and an employee roster over 120, a decision was made to renovate and preserve the original structure to create additional office space.
Natural Gas Appliance Sales Center
The newly renovated building features a spacious 5,300 square foot, state-of the art sales and appliance showroom. You’ll now find displays that include both vented and unvented gas logs, along with a large selection of stand alone fireplaces and space heaters. Experience centers located throughout the showroom feature natural gas appliances in homelike settings promoting the advantages of using natural gas in the kitchen and laundry. With the additional space we’re now able to feature gas lanterns from Legendary Lighting. The highlight of the renovated building is the expanded patio area with the latest in outdoor living including a full outdoor kitchen, fireplace, tiki torches, fire bowls, fire pits/tables and even a fire fountain.
In addition to residential offerings, the new facility was designed with commercial high-efficiency natural gas technologies including a Yanmar Gas-Powered Heating & Cooling system (GHP), and a Rinnai Demand Duo tankless water heating application visible through glass doors in the lobby.
The residential sector uses natural gas to heat buildings and water, to cook and to dry clothes, but the industrial sector is the largest consumer of natural gas and relies on it as a base ingredient for many manufacturing processes. As a clean-burning fuel alternative, natural gas plays a role in the creation of products you use every day, from cosmetics to clothes, cars and consumer goods.
Several of our top industrial customers are highlighted in the Showroom along with the products they produce right here in York County.
