Rink Architect Hired; Students Study Photo Voltaic Possibilities
Holderness School has hired the H.L. Turner Group as the lead architect on the construction of its new outdoor hockey rink, slated for opening for the 2015 – 2016 ice hockey season. The new rink’s design reflects a long-standing “bold and cold” Holderness ice hockey tradition – with a few modern improvements.  The new rink will provide for two heated spectators areas, a plaza between Bartsch/Gallop and the rink, an improved foot pattern and walkway, and, of course, significantly upgraded mechanicals. Milestone Construction Management will be managing the project.

The current plan also calls for installation of Photo Voltaic (PV) solar panels on the new roof; such an installation could result in a net zero result on electricity use for the rink.  Holderness students in this term’s science elective, “Energy,” conducted research on the possibilities of PV this fall. With more efficient LED lighting and refrigeration, and supported by rebates from the NHEC and an early gift from a donor motivated by solar, Holderness School hopes to make an important statement about sustainability along with creating a vital, welcoming and inspiring home for Holderness School hockey.

Gallery of the Week
Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug
Students took off the first half of the week of October 20th to go home for a couple days, so campus was quiet...Well, not really. The installation of pipes for the new heating system continued to require lots of digging and drilling. The pipes now run under Route 175 and run clockwise around the Quad. Meanwhile, once the students returned, they immediately jumped back into their routines -- including sports competitions. The boys' varsity soccer team played an impressive scoreless game, while both cross-country teams dominated the trails and continued their winning streak. Take a look at our Smugmug Gallery of the Week to see what the Bulls were up to.
