Alumni Stadium Bubble

BOSTON COLLEGE
Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts


BR+A designed the heating and air inflation system, fire alarm and electrical systems for a new 80,000 SF air supported field house. The Bubble is erected over the Alumni Stadium field in November following the last football game. The 200’w x 400’l x 60’h Bubble encloses the entire football field and provides Boston College with a versatile field house for the winter season. The Bubble is held down by a large concrete mat with steel cables looped over the top and has 2 gas fired heating and ventilation units plus a back up inflation fan on Emergency Power in case there is a power outage in a snow storm. This project was coordinated in conjunction with the replacement of the old Astroturf playing surface.
