65,000 sq. ft. | $22.4 million | October 2009
Barton Education provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing design services for a 10,000 square-foot renovation and a 55,000 square-foot addition to the College’s existing sports and recreation facility. The addition included a new weight and fitness room, athletic training room with a Hydroworx therapy pool and a natatorium with eight competition lanes, a five-lane warm-up pool and 350-seat spectator gallery. The project also included infrastructure improvements such as the relocation of campus utilities and updates to the campus central plant, as well as the design of energy-efficient systems such as centrifugal chillers, high-efficiency water tube re-heat boilers and daylighting and water conservation methods. One of the most significant features of this facility is an 80’ thermal chimney enclosing the rock-climbing wall to provide natural ventilation and cooling.
Awards: This project achieved LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council as well as the McGraw-Hill 2010 Mid-Atlantic Higher Education Project of the Year Award.
