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