Special Events Recreation Center
This $29 million, 147,000 SF student recreation and special events center is the hub of the campus and one of its most important student recruitment tools. In addition to the large multi-use “House of Fields”, the building includes an indoor running track, fitness center, weight room and staff offices.
The main event space includes seating for 8,000, athletic and academic space. Uses of the space range from housing Brockport’s annual graduation, to hosting concerts and major events, while also expanding recreational opportunities on campus.
M/E Engineering, designed all HVAC, plumbing and electrical services to the SERC Building. Systems include a full capacity ice storage system which allows for the cooling loads of the building to be satisfied during off-peak hours, which also allowed the building chillers to be reduced in size, thereby reducing the installation cost of the system.
