This 218,000-square-foot sports area is used for events such as hockey and basketball games, as well as live concerts. A space of this magnitude and complexity requires engineering and mechanical expertise second to none. U&S Services’ extensive experience with venues like the Erie Insurance Arena is setting the gold standard for the industry.

For this large-scale project, U&S provided an Andover Controls Direct Digital Control (DDC) system, in addition to supplying materials and engineering services. Equipment included air handling units, hot water boilers, chillers, hot and chilled water pumps, exhaust fans, variable air volume boxes and condensing units. Using BACnet technology, U&S integrated the HVAC controls to achieve maximum efficiency. Energy management is made possible using monitoring software via the supplied workstation.

As with any true partnership, U&S Services provided facilities management staff with training to ensure maximized operations and efficiency. Visitors of Erie Insurance Arena get what they expect—a safe and comfortable environment where they can have a great time.
