The goal for the new 14,000 sq. ft. Wilmington Sports Center was to provide thousands of under-served youth in the area new sports programming opportunities, with natural daylighting playing a huge role in the basis of design for its health benefits and reduced energy costs. Rosetti Architects wanted to replicate the feeling of playing outside, but without the heat and glare. The multi-purpose sports complex and youth training center features 23,580 sq. ft. of our UniQuad® translucent wall system to achieve this feeling, reducing glare and heat gain in the process and providing an abundance of natural daylighting in the arena portions of the building. Our system features bold graphics on the ice white matte and blue-glazed panels, highlighting the new home for the 76ers Minor League affiliate basketball team, the Delaware Blue Coats. The recreation center houses three basketball courts, two full-size soccer fields, retail and office space, and a physical therapy and orthopedic clinic for community members.
