Grand Valley State University Kelly Family Sports Center
Grand Rapids, MI

Responding to an increased demand for recreational space, the Kelly Family Sports Center provides additional sports, fitness and educational opportunities for GVSU students. Functional, sustainable, cost-effective and student-focused, the 138,000SF building was shaped by the sports program, specifically the 100-yard field and six-lane, 300-meter indoor track. The structurally complex long span building is intentionally positioned to maximize available sunlight, solar heating and natural ventilation. Sustainable highlights include photo-voltaic roof panels, solar wall technology, a turf roof and rain gardens. It boasts a 25% improvement over baseline energy consumption and earned a $247,791 tax credit under the 2005 Energy Policy Act.
