Key Facts: 

  • Air handling units have energy recovery on exhaust air.
  • Full heat recovery is possible from the ice plant for space and ventilation air heating. Excess heat from the ice plant is rejected to a ground loop (geothermal) heat exchanger.
  • Geothermal heat pumps provide space cooling along with space heating, pool heating and water heating.
  • The ice rink has a low-emissivity ceiling to reduce cooling loads.
  • The pool filtration pumps have variable speed drives to reduce energy usage when the filters are clean and over night.
  • The pool dehumidification unit rejects heat to ventilation and the pool.
  • Pool backwash is sent to the ice melt pit to reduce heating energy.
  • The Galleria and Library have an engineered natural ventilation system to save cooling and fan energy when conditions permit.
  • Flat plate solar collectors provide heating for the lap pool.
  • Embedded bleacher radiant heating provides a more comfortable environment and saves energy compared to conventional heating systems. 
  • Variable Speed drives are installed on circulation pumps to save electricity and provide greater control.
  • A rainwater harvesting system provides water to toilets and urinals. 
  • Occupancy and daylight sensors are installed to reduce lighting power when rooms are unoccupied. 
  • Electric vehicle charging stations are installed allowing visitors to charge their vehicle while they visit the facility.
