Field House Project Nearly Complete
The systems upgrade at the UW Marinette Field House is nearly complete. Tuesday, Marinette County Facilities Director Martin Keyport led the Building and Property Committee on a tour of the field house to show off the building’s new HVAC system capabilities. He says a number of other projects were able to be completed while the new Dectron installation took place.
Keyport says a new HVAC system was necessitated by the old unit’s inability to keep up with the demands placed on it by the pool’s high-humidity environment.
This spring crews will begin working on the field house parking lot and its lighting. Keyport also plans to partner with UW-Marinette personnel to refresh the building’s exterior. The total cost of the Field House upgrades to Marinette County is around 400-thousand dollars.
