Starion Sports Complex
Mandan, North Dakota
This project included the mechanical, electrical and fire protection design for a new recreation facility for the Mandan community.
Mechanically, Obernel designed for a VAV RTU (gymnastics and concourse), gas-fired make-up air unit (locker rooms), and two ice dehumidification units (one for each sheet of ice). VAV’s in gymnastics and concourse have hot water reheats. Electrical Rooms and Parks District Offices provided with split system AC. New high-efficiency hot water boilers. Standard plumbing fixtures, gas-fired water heaters, primary and secondary roof drains, connected to hot water storage tanks designed by ice equipment consultant with a waste-heat connection to the ice making chillers for domestic hot water pre-heat.
Fire protection design included a domestic water booster pump and fire pump that were required for this project due to very bad water pressure. Wet fire protection system provided throughout with two zones.
The electrical design included telecom cabling, IP video surveillance, door access, burglar alarm, fire alarm, parking lot lighting, football field lighting, power, and interior lighting. Obernel also designed a new sound system for the main ice rink.
