Horse Racetrack Chooses Trane HVAC
Owners at Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey expect the Trane infrastructure systems selected for the new grandstand currently under construction to be up to 20 percent more energy efficient than conventional solutions.
The new $85 million, 2,200-seat grandstand at the Meadowlands Racetrack is being built on the site of the current backstretch. The new grandstand will include food courts, a sports bar, VIP areas and a 9,000-sq-foot rooftop deck with views of the New York skyline. The new facility is slated to open for live racing in late November 2013.
The selected rooftop HVAC systems provide cooling to building occupants while simultaneously self-monitoring to optimize efficiency.
Tne racetrack owners selected a wireless communication system, which replaces typical wired communication lines. Controls can be reconfigured if the grandstand space needs to be rearranged in the years ahead, saving time in the construction schedule that conventional wired systems would require. The wireless controls also offer lower lifecycle costs than traditional wired solutions due to their ease of service and maintenance.
