Halsey Field House
Location: Annapolis, Maryland
Owner: U.S. Navy Academy
In 2012, SEA conducted an energy audit for the Halsey Field House in Annapolis, MD. Halsey Field House is a multi-purpose arena at the United States Naval Academy with a seating capacity of 5,000.
The 181,915-square foot Halsey Field House serves as the primary home venue for the wrestling team. This building features an artificial-turf indoor football field, a 200-meter synthetic track, squash and tennis courts, a 65 tatami dojo for Aikido/Judo and a climbing wall. Additionally, both basketball teams utilize the facility for many of their practices.
The North Wing has five basketball courts, five squash courts, dressing rooms, a conditioning room, classrooms for physical education, athletic-gear storage, and office space for instructors.
The field house proper is 200 feet wide, 370 feet long, and is sheltered by a 70-foot high roof. The main floor is surrounded by a 200-meter synthetic running track.
This scope of work supports the Department of the Navy’s Energy Assessment program. The program has two main objectives: first, identify energy efficiency opportunities with benefits, costs and savings. This is to prioritize all identified opportunities for funding and implementation. Second, comply with Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of December 2007. Project requirements included:
- Provide commissioning recommendations
- Identify energy and water conservation opportunities
- Examine all significant energy and water-using systems
- Investigate building-level renewable energy opportunities
- Identify building systems repairs, replacements and modifications
