This new 16,800 square foot structure houses a basketball court, weight room, yoga studio, ski waxing room, equipment storage, locker rooms and a social space.
The new field house features composting toilets, rainwater management, super insulation, automatic light controls, a solar summer hot water heater, and a state-of-the-art air-to- air heat exchange pump powered by sun-tracking photovoltaic cells – qualifying the project for a U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Rating. It also makes this the first net-zero educational building in the nation and the largest and first nonresidential structure of its kind in Vermont.
