Edinboro University - Multisport Dome
Location: Edinboro, PA
Application: Multisport Dome
Size: 231’ W x 371’ L (85,701 sq. ft.)
Features:
  • Low bias cable system add structural support
  • Exterior banner with school logo
  • Heated for use during winter season

Challenge:

  • Build a cost-effective indoor sports facility for Edinboro University athletes that is energy efficient and designed to withstand heavy snowfall.

Solution:

  • Arizon designed, manufactured and installed a climate-controlled, air-supported building over the school’s track with an open-span court area in the center for basketball, volleyball and other sports.
  • The building is highly energy efficient, as it uses an opaque panel design with R-12 insulation and a high-efficiency HVAC system to keep the dome heated during winter.
  • A low bias cable system gives the dome extra support to handle high snow and heavy winter winds without damaging the exterior fabric.

Result:

  • With approximately one third of the investment required to construct an indoor sports complex using “traditional” building materials, Edinboro University is able to provide state-of-the-art indoor facilities for volleyball, basketball, track and other sports for its student athletes.
  • The dome’s high grade insulation and high efficiency HVAC system creates a comfortable interior space at a low cost to operate year-round.
  • Built with safety in mind, students can enjoy the dome rain or shine- even during snow storms.
