Case Study: University Sports Arena

Engineers overcome 55 year old venue’s HVAC equipment space limitations and design/installation challenges with new 60 inch diameter fabric duct. The consulting engineer/architecture firm spearheading the HVAC portion of the $72 million renovation found that fabric duct, which was 90% lighter than metal duct, was the solution to both the project’s roof load-bearing limitations along with the many added advantages of fabric compared to the metal alternative.

SkeleCore's Pull-Tight technology supports the fabric with 360 degrees of tensioning eliminating noise, sagging, and wrinkles. SkeleCore Pull-Tight can be suspended from either a tension cable or track suspension system and is tensioned "externally" utilizing a tension cable lock. Pull-Tight improves startup performance and aesthetics when compared to multiple row, horizontal suspension systems.

Moving well beyond parking lots, the potential for permeable paver systems has expanded to include promenades, plazas, park hardscapes, walkways, entry courtyards, and other important outdoor spaces. Thanks to modern and ever expanding finishes, colors, shapes, sizes and technologies, designers no longer need to compromise their design intent to provide sustainable permeability for these applications.
