Kean University Gymnasium
The Harwood Arena is a newly renovated sports complex at Kean University in New Jersey. The Arena features a basketball court, indoor track, swimming pools, exercise and locker rooms. The bleacher seating for the Arena allows for 3,200 Cougar fans.
Binsky & Snyder became involved early in the project, assisting the architect and construction management team during the initial planning efforts. The project was executed during the school year, so careful planning was necessary to address the safety of the students and the ongoing operations of nearby facilities and classroom activities.
The major component of Binsky's scope was the installation of ninety 300 ft deep geothermal wells. The wells were utilized for the heating and cooling medium required for the 58 heat pumps throughout the facility.
Binsky installed two 65 ton gas-driven roof mounted chillers in support of the aquatic facilities.
Binsky was proud to be a part of this green initiative for Kean University, and the Cougars were able to begin their new season in an impressive state-of-the-art sports complex.
