Schottenstein Center

Barton Malow

Being based in Columbus, OH, we were excited to have the opportunity to influence the LEED outcome of the upgrades to the Schottenstein Center – Ohio State University’s main basketball arena that is also used for concerts and other large events. Ohio State added a 20,000 sq. feet to the north part of the building which house the women’s and men’s basketball offices. While wanting to create a unique interior experience for players, recruits, and coaches, Ohio State also wanted to reach a LEED status with the upgrade.

EA Energy’s role was to help with the scope of construction. Impressive aesthetics were a main focal point for the project, which meant a lot of the materials used were very unique. Even with that, the addition achieved an indoor water use reduction of over 40% and an energy use reduction of over 24%.

We helped Barton Malow and their subcontractors utilize recycled content and regional materials for the upgrade. Construction materials documented were at least 22.45% (by cost) manufactured from recycled content and 41.27% (by cost) manufactured regionally. Overall there was an 82% diversion rate for construction waste.

EA was happy to provide the construction scope documentation for the project and it made it even better that the Schottenstein Center is now a LEED Silver building.
