PROJECT FOCUS SPORTS AND RECREATION


Harold Alfond Forum at the University of New England, Biddeford, Maine The $20 million, 105,000-square-foot complex houses a 900-seat NHL-sized hockey rink and a 1,200-seat court for basketball and volleyball. In addition, the Forum has classrooms for athletic training and applied exercise science programs, strength and conditioning facilities, a cyber café for dining and student study space, conference rooms and offi ces for UNE’s Athletics Programs. The Forum’s exterior features 12,000 square


feet of Englert Inc.’s 24-gauge, H12-3 corrugated vertical siding with an ULTRA-Cool Kynar 500 Sandstone and Tan fi nish. The siding is interspersed with 2,000 square


feet of Englert’s CWP-200 Rainscreen in the Alpolic Wood Grain series that employs an integral, accent strip and adjustable attachment method. All panels were assembled using proprietary internal extrusions that provide a rigid perimeter, producing a stiff panel that resists defl ection and modulation. Also used were 2,000 square feet of Englert’s B4000 metallic copper soffi t. The building’s structure is a pre-engineered


metal building system from Butler Manufacturing. The Alfond Forum was originally envisioned in the schematics stage as a conventionally framed steel structure with a nonmetal roof. This type of con- struction changed to Butler Manufacturing’s metal building systems when Butler Builder, Sheridan Corp. presented the construction manager and design fi rm signifi cantly lower pricing for a Butler metal building systems solution. Sheridan’s pro- posal initially included Widespan structural fram- ing, an MR-24 standing seam metal roof system with a Simple Saver insulation system and Flat StylWall wall system in Cool Ocean Blue. The roof

was later changed to the CMR-24 roof system with a Cool Igloo White fi nish. The building’s footprint subdivides into a 102-


by 220-foot area for the ice hockey rink, 50- by 115-foot connecter and 125- by 215-foot multipur- pose basketball wing. Sustainable features include a high-performance water-source heat pump sys- tem, which captures the byproduct energy off the hockey arena’s ice system to heat and cool the top- loaded spectator environment. The dual-purpose system is complemented by a high-output, T5 fl uorescent lighting system and cool-rated fi nishes on the roof and walls.
