Athletic Facilities, St. Andrew’s School | Middletown, Delaware
The field house floor is depressed fifteen feet below grade, and has a reduced perimeter, allowing the building to take advantage of the earth’s fifty five degree temperature to assist in heating and cooling the large volume. The above ground and at grade jogging track makes use of glazing to allow 100% natural lighting during the day. Key strategies for the facility includes daylight for 100% of the gym spaces in the Field House and 83% of other regularly occupied spaces, mostly offices. 99% of all regularly occupied spaces provide views to outside, excluding the wood floor basketball courts where views and glazing would be distracting. There is a 42% reduction in wastewater usage from average toilets, sinks, and other fixtures by using more efficient fixtures.
