NovaCare Complex

NovaCare Complex

Brinjac provided engineering services for the Philadelphia Eagles NovaCare Complex at Broad and Pattison Streets adjacent to the Sports Complex in south Philadelphia. The project provides the Eagles with a truly state-of-the-art, NFL practice and training facility, as well as housing their corporate offices, media center and an outpatient rehabilitation facility for their corporate partner NovaCare. 

The training facility features a weight room, peak performance training center, hydrotherapy pools, sauna, steam room, and locker rooms as well as a commercial laundry and a player lounge. The corporate office facility includes executive and staff offices, team meeting rooms, draft room, a TV studio, auditorium, media work room, dining facilities and a stadium sales area with model room and a mock up of a luxury suite. Other elements of the project include three (3) outdoor practice fields, a fabric-covered rigid frame structure housing a 70-yard indoor practice field and rehabilitation of several existing structures on the site for ancillary uses.
 
Specific features of the engineering design include:
• HVAC systems specifically designed for humidity control and to support widely varying conditions of occupancy while providing superior indoor air quality.
• Specialized lighting systems for the indoor practice field, auditorium and TV studio as well as lighting to complement the building facade and architecturally significant portions of the building interior.
• Emergency generator and distribution system designed to support code-required life safety systems, as well as critical systems and data processing equipment.
• Uninterruptible power systems to support critical data processing equipment.
• Complete structured telecommunications cabling system supporting all low voltage systems in the building.
• Fiber optic and coaxial cable distribution to support media retrieval system with video distribution to all coaches’ offices.
