Double-skin cavity wall will keep athletic center warm and bright

October 01, 2008 |

RMJM Hillier of New York has broken ground on the Ian H. Graham Athletic Center at Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J. The athletic center will include a renovation to the existing 112,000-sf facility and construction of a 35-meter competition pool. The new pool building will be clad with a double skin of polycarbonate with a 20-inch cavity to maximize daylight and help moderate the indoor temperature. The project also includes a new fitness and wellness center, outdoor turf fields, and a rooftop photovoltaic system.
