The health and well-being of communities depend on culture, sports and recreational facilities that are adapted to the needs of the community whether for using the facilities to participate in a sport or for attending an event.
Culture, sports and recreational facilities are more than just places to play sports or attend an event. They are real, dynamic places for the community to gather not only now, but in the future.
Eco-friendly, cost-saving facilities
Most arenas use outdated refrigeration systems which emit large amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGS) into the atmosphere negatively impacting the environment.
Organizations operating this type of building must therefore upgrade their systems to reduce their emissions and, at the same time, their operating costs.
At CIMA+, our specialists have mastered the ability to create designs that consider large volumes, users’ comfort and energy management. The designers at CIMA+ have an excellent understanding of material performance, thermodynamics, and energy harvesting. From incorporating the use of natural light, controlling sound levels, and ensuring optimal thermal comfort, all buildings built or renovated by CIMA+ are user-friendly and energy efficient.
The experts at CIMA+ are masters in the construction and renovation of buildings like arenas, and in doing so create an eco-friendly environment that not only reduces electricity costs but also the ecological footprint. Because of this, CIMA+ has been recognized for the ingenuity and complexity of their projects, as well as for the ability to integrate bold architectural designs that create unique living environments.
