CHARLES BENSON BEAR ’39 ATHLETIC CENTER, GRINNELL COLLEGE

Grinnell, IA

CBB provided a complete lighting design for a new, multi-sport athletic and recreational center at Grinnell College. The complex houses a regulation-size basketball arena, in addition to the large, open-plan Campus Fitness Center, an indoor running track, offices and a mezzanine overlooking the facility’s activities.

The Fitness Center had strict requirements for high light levels, for both ambience and safety. The lighting incorporates daylight harvesting, to maximize energy-efficiency within these requirements.
