Event Description

Join USGBC MA for a tour of Bentley Arena, a LEED Platinum ice arena.

Unveiled in 2017, the multi-purpose Bentley Arena was built to serve as the new home to the university’s NCAA Division I hockey team and prominent university events. In 2018, Bentley Arena added a LEED platinum certification, the highest possible rating, from the U.S. Green Building Council to its trophy case. In 2018, the Bentley Arena was also awarded USGBC MA’s Eversource Energy Optimization award during the Green Building Showcase.

Standout features of the arena include:

  • innovative technology that captures heat generated from the rink’s ice-making equipment to heat water throughout the building
  • high-efficiency LED lighting with smart, motion-detecting controls that turn off lights when no one is present to sharply reduce electricity usage
  • the highest-efficiency plumbing fixtures on the market, including waterless urinals, dual-flush toilets, and low-flow faucets and showers to reduce the demand for water.
  • The project also included a 504 kilowatt, rooftop solar array and 1,400 rooftop solar panels that will generate 40 percent of the building’s annual electricity needs.
